Are you, as the boss, grasping at straws to manage your subordinates?

Is your career going nowhere because of the way you manage yourself and other people?

Are you part of an organization where bosses and their subordinates do not pull in the same direction and fail to meet ever-rising expectations?

Do you think your boss is the reason you hate your job?

Are office politics preventing you from fulfilling your potential?

When the boss is wrong will help bosses, subordinates and organizations find the answers to these questions and many more. In this book, Sibichen K. Mathew draws from his rich academic and professional experience and deftly delineates the fifty shades of the boss to create unique prescriptions for the wrong bosses and precautions and solutions for their suffering subordinates.

Peppered with humorous anecdotes and cartoons, this is your handbook for analyzing yourself and becoming the best boss. It will help you realize your strengths and weaknesses and enable you to plan your future in a better way.
