A (Growing) Resource List
* A blog article titled “Be kind” by Andrew (Boz) Bosworth (Many thanks to my friend Rodger for referring the article to me!) In it, a senior Facebook engineer (now VP of Engineering) talks about his experience of almost being kicked out of his team once.
* Book: The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't, By Robert Sutton. This is a provocative book, especially when it first came out in 2010. It may help you better articulate how a co-worker/boss is making life miserable for others at work. You may then compare notes with others and discuss solutions accordingly.
* Book: Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success by Adam Grant. The author, a well-respected organizational psychologist, will convince you that one doesn't need to be an asshole to succeed at work and in life! The book offers many practical tools for how to achieve your goals through helping and collaborating with others.
