I, like many people, know all to well the suffering caused by working in a difficult workplace!
The feeling of doing two jobs instead of one. The boss who fails to notice your achievements but pounces on every mistake. The stiff neck , racing heart ... the feeling of apprehensiveness that won't go away.
What I didn't know is that there is a simple remedy to anxiety and stress at work that costs nothing and really helps.
Transcend Your Boss: Zen and the Difficult Workplace is a wonderful follow-up to the author's 2012 book, Surviving Bullies, Queen Bees & Psychopaths in the Workplace, which provides practical advice about what to do if you are a target of mistreatment.
The problem with any solution to workplace abuse is that it takes time. Transcend Your Boss: Zen and the Difficult Workplace helps you manage your stress so you can remain on the job while you pursue a complaint or make plans to find a new job.
Zen theory and meditation help workers put their suffering in perspective so they can avoid responding to workplace abuse in a way that is contrary to their self-interest. The book contains simple instructions on how to meditate in the workplace, and guided meditations designed for workers who are being abused by a boss or employer.
This is also fun. It is readable and entertaining, with many thought-provoking stories that reflect the timeless wisdom of the Buddha. If you plan to do or have ever worked for aliving, I highly recommend that you read this book!.
