You work for a challenging boss, and you’re struggling. You’ve tried working harder. You’ve tried working smarter. But you’re still feeling undermined, angry, and your self-belief is taking a nose-dive. As someone who “gets things right”, you just can’t figure this situation out – and secretly, it’s unravelling you.

 

Enter Dr Laura Crawshaw. She’s been researching and coaching abrasive leaders for more than 40 years. She’s the author of Taming the Abrasive Manager: How to End Unnecessary Roughness in the Workplace, and her clients range from the UN to NASA.

 

We get to grips with the following:

 

If someone’s already hard on themselves, are they more susceptible to the damage an abrasive leader can cause?

 

You’ll learn about what the abrasive leader is usually afraid of (erm…YOU!).

 

You’ll learn how to avoid the “boiling-the-frog effect” that makes the dynamic with an abrasive boss especially insidious.

 

Practical and provocative, you’ll get tools (and relief) from Dr Laura. Press play – let’s go!
