Interesting issues as we talk about Asking for a Pay Raise, Toxic Leadership and Stupid Bosses!

There have been a lot of emails pouring in lately about bosses. So in this issue we dedicated a little more time to the topic of leaders and bosses. We have not been able to reply a lot of emails and this task looks more unlikely to be fulfilled as the site grows. What we will do though is group all the emails and turn them into topics of interests and hopefully they will answer your queries.

We look for your support NOT in terms of money, but if you like our work, please support us by sharing the articles you like.

Just click on one of the convenient social media buttons below each page on our site. Share it on Facebook, Tweet This, Stumble Upon, share on Google, Yahoo Buzz, MySpace, or Technorati. You can also Digg us, Tweet us, or plain forward your favourite page link to your friends via email, put a link on your blog or Facebook, or online profile.

It helps keep people sane at work.

This issue we bring you 9 interesting articles. As usual, these are requested from readers and visitors to our site.

We hope you will find these helpful.
