Samenvatting

When the Harvard Business Review asked Robert Sutton for suggestions for its annual list of Breakthrough Ideas, he told them that the best business practice he knew of was 'the no asshole rule'. Sutton's piece became one of the most popular articles ever to appear in the HBR. Spurred on by the fear and despair that people expressed, the tricks they used to survive with dignity in asshole-infested places, the revenge stories that made him laugh out loud and the other small wins that they celebrated against mean-spirited people, Sutton was persuaded to write THE NO ASSHOLE RULE. He believes passionately that civilised workplaces are not a naive dream, that they do exist, do bolster performance and that widespread contempt can be erased and replaced with mutual respect when a team or organisation is managed right. There is a huge temptation by executives and those in positions of authority to overlook this trait especially when exhibited by so-called producers, but Sutton shows how overall productivity suffers when the workplace is subjected to this kind of stress.

    This book is easy to read and is useful to anyone working with other people.

    The book starts with asking the reader two simple questions: how do you feel after talking to this toxic person? And, does this person target people that are 'less powerful'?. Then it gives a list - the dirty dozen - of the common everyday actions they do:

    - personal insults
    - invading one's personal territory
    - uninvited personal contact
    - threats and intimidation, both verbal and non-verbal
    - sarcastic jokes and teasing used as insult delivery system
    - withering e-mail flames
    - status slaps intended to humiliate their victims
    - public shaming or status degradation rituals
    - rude interruptions
    - two-faced attacks
    - dirty looks
    - treating people as if they are invisible

    It points that these people cost companies more than they bring in, and that the management should pay more attention to the well-being of all employees. It then finishes by giving some copying strategies (although let's face it, not everyone has the luxury of walking away from a job), and advise on how not to become one.
