Transforming Workplace Relationships
by Cynthia Clay and Ray Olitt
To get things done, you probably work with others. When conflict or tension arises, do you always know the best strategy at the right time to transform the outcome?
Peer Power provides the keys to effective interpersonal collaboration. Building on a foundation of four principles (Be Real, Extend Respect, Take Responsibility, and Build Relationships), you will expand your ability to positively influence others.
The authors share common mistakes they've made, along with the choices they recommend to work effectively with challenging people. From the "drive-by boss" and the "faux-smart" boss to the "whiner" and the "clueless colleague," the book exposes nine behavior patterns that may bedevil you at work. Rather than pointing fingers at others, Peer Power encourages you to modify your behavior so you can influence changes in their behavior. If your selected strategy fails, Peer Power offers a "Plan B" for your next best option.
Start building a successful, satisfying career beginning now, using the practices explained in Peer Power.
