The No As**ole Rule


“The difference between how a person treats the powerless versus the powerful is as good a measure of human character as I know.”


The book tackles the sensitive topic of having bullies in the workplace and how to handle such behaviour and individuals.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

1. Don't just talk about not tolerating toxic behaviour, but actually do something about it, especially if you are a leader. Words are empty unless your actions back them up.

2. Bullies have no place in any organization, regardless of how well they perform. As a leader, it is your responsibility to remove such people.

3. Recognize that we all have the potential to behave like an asshole. Become self-aware of your triggers and control your temperament as and when needed.


READ IF: You are experiencing toxic behaviour in your environment, whether it is directed at you or at others, and need practical advice on how to handle it.
