Prof. Anat Lechner provides advice for dealing with a difficult manager
— July 21, 2014
Excerpt from Ignites -- "Bad bosses are typically insecure, says Anat Lechner, a business management professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University. Currying favor across the organization can help provide cover. 'If you establish yourself as central to the network within your workplace, your boss is not going to target you,' Lechner says. 'By targeting you, [your manager] is going to be alienated by many more people.'"
