Examples of good and bad executive behavior highlight advice for creating an environment that meets the needs of its customers and employees

Simon and Schuster
How does your boss stack up? Can you imagine a boss who hides in a dark closet so that he can hear what his employees say when they think he's gone? How about a boss who "saves money" by separating two-ply toilet tissue to make two rolls out of one? Or a boss who made his receptionist climb into a Dumpster to search for papers he had lost -- which turned out to be in his briefcase? These and other outrageous bosses were nominated as America's worst in Jim Miller's "Best Boss/Worst Boss" contests. Best Boss, Worst Boss features an insightful look by Miller, the bestselling author of The Corporate Coach, at the worst of business leadership. Best Boss, Worst Boss is not just about bad bosses, however. Jim Miller also points to some of the country's best bosses as people to be emulated, like the boss who took her entire office to the beach for the day, or the boss who writes a thank-you note on each paycheck. With both positive and negative examples, Miller offers his trademark "Corporate Coach" advice -- sound, practical information on managing and being managed, with charts and tips for both employer and employee. Using "best boss" stories and other examples, Jim Miller promotes the strategies, attitudes, and actions that lead to an ideal workplace. After all, happy employees lead to happy customers and a more productive company!
