Everyone has a "schmuck" in their office - a difficult, disruptive person who upsets the workplace, confuses their coworkers, and causes concern. No one is safe from a schmuck. They come in many sizes and shapes, such as:
Narcissus - the self-centered, condescending, attention-seeking peacock who tramples on others
The Flytrap - the bringer of chaos who can flip from angry to happy in an instant, creating an office maelstrom
The Bean Counter - the orderly perfectionist who never gives up control even when it's full-steam ahead to disaster
The Robot - the inflexible stone wall who is incapable of adapting, even in the face of much-needed change
Sound like anyone you know? These are just a few of the more prominent schmucks. In her new audiobook, Dr. Jody Foster explains the entire spectrum of schmucks and how they can decrease productivity and generally make everyone else unhappy.
After delineating the various types of schmucks, she looks at personality traits and explains how interactions among coworkers can become maladaptive, leading to workplace disasters. She helps listeners understand the schmuck as a person, figure out how to help him or her, and effect a positive solution. Dr. Foster also helps listeners understand the most difficult thing of all: Sometimes you are the schmuck.
Let Dr. Jody Foster show you how to help the schmuck, know if you are the schmuck, and make your workplace a happy and productive one.

Shmucks!? You might be the schmuck!
It is a very easy listen and gives insight to personalities in the workplace. It gives both high level psychology & lower level psychology. It can be a simple how too. It can also bring to light things about oneself and others we might not see or are not ready to face in a workplace setting. Worth a listen or purchase.
Not one memorable moment but I like how the author seeks to thread the need to really work with others to resolve and reconcile. It shows the need to regard others not just fire them.
I don't know.
