As always, Jeff is careful with the facts and puts that above all! I stand corrected. And to bolster Jeff's point, research on bullying shows that about 30% of workers in the U.S. and the UK experience persistent psychological abuse -- which means that a heck of a lot of bosses are getting away with acting like assholes out there.

What I like about working with Bob is that he is creative but not always accurate. What I said--and what I stand by--in the AP story is NOT that nasty bosses don't do much damage. What I said, and what the evidence shows, is that there are amazingly few consequences for nasty bosses in many, many organizations--regardless of how many stories or e-mails get out.
