How to Manage Despite Your Boss
by Erwin Hohn & Adi Nell

Having problems with your boss? You’re not alone.
This is how to make it happen in spite of your boss!

Has your boss hired you to make changes, but stands in your way? Does he see himself as the final authority because of his 'unique experience' in his 'unique market'? Perhaps you’ve joined an organisation and can see its potential is huge, but your boss won’t allow change. To get things done you have to go through him, and he’s having none of it.

How to Manage Despite Your Boss outlines common causes for your frustration and explains how you can begin to address the concepts and ideas that you’ll need to master in order to succeed. Whenever you set out to do something new, it’s a good idea to know exactly what you want to achieve. With the inclusion of a practical framework for dealing with problematic bosses, this book can provide guidance on how to move the organisation you work for in a more appropriate direction.

Inspired by Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard and Malcolm Gladwell, How to Manage Despite Your Boss is ideal for managers of all levels struggling to get change past their direct superiors, with a hope of empowering them to create better staff engagement.

Marshall Goldsmith author of the New York Times and global bestseller What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.

How To Manage Despite Your Boss ought to be required reading for business schools so that MBA graduates understand how much work you need to do to effect change.
After your first week in a new job, you sit with your colleagues and say ‘If only they would listen’. With a bit of luck, one day you will be one of them. This book gives you an outline on how to be a good one of them”
Sir George Russell CBE

An essential companion for the busy manager. How To Manage Despite Your Boss provides a great overview for leading and managing change. It distils business school theory into useful management models and frameworks for practical application in your organisation. I thoroughly recommend this book if you are embarking on a change management programme

The last boss I ever had was over twenty years ago. He was a successful paranoid megalomaniac. If only I had had the opportunity to read the guidance and wisdom contained in this book back then, I might have been able to forge a strategy of working with him that might just have made that company even more successful in spite of his awful personality and resulting professional failings. This book is an absolute ‘must read’ for anyone whose boss cramps their style, reduces their ingenuity and output or simply stresses them to the point of detachment from their career goals in their workplace. It’s also a ‘must read’ for any boss who thinks that their management style is perfect and motivating. Maybe you could do better by your staff and colleagues and so be a more successful boss as a result of the insights you can learn in these pages
