Daniela doesn’t give a damn about her boss
In the first part oft he book we describe (apart of additional strategies of how to pretend stress) the “I don’t give a shit” strategy. This strategy should shake up all leaders, because with this strategy, Daniela just renounced on these boreout-strategies. She acts as if her boss was not present at all, ignoring him with a certain kind of pleasure. A real example that shows how passively many leaders react, even in the light of such obvious provocations (text only available in German).
 Fritz – the overqualified employee
In this chapter we talk about an important element of strategic human resources: qualitative personnel planning. It’s not only about the present requirements, but particularly looking forward into the future. How does a job change over years and what consequences can bad planning have for the employees occupying this job? Fritz was very successful in his company, but after a few years there was a mismatch between his personality and the job content – he now was over qualified. The company did not foresee this mismatch – and therefore lost its “High Potential” Fritz as an employee (text only available in German).
