Robert Sutton, Ph. His book The No Asshole Rule will help you verify that you work with an asshole, realize how assholes are destroying your company, and understand what you can do to handle them and save your sanity. What is an asshole? People use the term frequently for anyone that bothers them, but for Sutton assholes are people that use their position to create a toxic environment for you and other workers.
Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose, and all the other fallen sexual harassers had one thing in common. They were notorious assholes. See Venn diagram below. They yelled at people, belittled staff in front of colleagues, threatened, bullied, interrupted, mocked, and generally threw their weight around. We thought it was the price to pay for the talent of great men. Maybe being an asshole was even a sign of great talent.
Good fortune has smiled on you because all signs point to great-looking yard decor! Lucky for you, you can find everything your front lawn craves right here in one place. You'll find political signs of course, as well as yards signs that make statements in other ways like personalized welcome signs, custom house signs, business signs and more.
My father always told me to avoid assholes at all costs, no matter how rich or powerful they might be, because I would catch their nastiness and impose it on others. I worked in an academic department at Stanford where we openly talked about the no asshole rule and used it in hiring decisions. I had published other articles in HBR , longer and more well-researched ones, but nothing had provoked such a strong response. The first example was the most common, and it reflected the pain that people feel when they are treated terribly, whether they are models, engineers, or CEOs who feel abused by their boards.
