We are all so different in some respects and so similar in others. One commonality we share is the desire to get along well with co-workers and enjoy our work. Most, if not all, of us have from time-to-time gotten upset with a co-worker and found ourselves in a dispute we really didn't want or need at the time.
Unfortunately unresolved conflict can steal our joy and make our work life a negative experience. In PLAY NICE in Your Sandbox at Work you will learn how to get along better with people who have been a challenge for you in the past. Differences can be strengths if we know how to handle them and this book will help equip you to do just that.
Few things can destroy workplace morale quicker than conflict between staff members or between management and staff. Since we typically spend more awake time with co-workers than family members, it should not surprise us that disputes and misunderstandings will occur and occasionally blossom into full blown conflict. Without adequate conflict management skills, these blowups can have negative, sometimes disastrous effects on all concerned.
We have all known, or heard of, people storming off the job following an argument that could have been avoided or handled better if the participants only knew the material contained in this book.
