Developed for training, HR, and OD professionals, this book provides the keys to effective interpersonal collaboration. Building on a foundation of four principles (Be Real, Extend Respect, Take Responsibility, and Build Relationships). Readers will learn how to apply five strategies (Collaborating, Going Head-to-Head, Compromising, Coaching, and Caring-for-Self) at the moment of need (a deteriorating relationship with a coworker or boss) and discover how to win support from others and manage difficult behavior when conflict arises. They describe several familiar and troublesome 'mistakes' workmates often make, then help us avoid them by applying four essential principles and five key strategies. Features content to deepen the readers' understanding of each concept and strategy with real life examples along with questionnaires at the end of each case chapter. Peer Power tells relevant stories, gives concrete examples of solutions, and provides real tools to repair relationships with these individuals. Practicing these tools improves effectiveness, reduces stress levels, helps build our company and makes this a better place to work. Chapter 1 looks at interpersonal behaviors that most of us have tried but don't work. Chapter 2 introduces the four key principles for effective communication. Chapter 3 dives into the five strategies for solving interpersonal problems. In the nine chapters that follow, the book tackles a challenging character at work The attacker (the colleague who repeatedly expresses his anger and frustration in the form of inappropriate personal criticism) The whiner (that coworker who complains without taking responsibility for improving conditions that surround her) The scene stealer (the peer who sets about building her reputation at your expense) The drive-by boss (a leader who ignores some of his key management responsibilities and doesn't meet the needs of his employees or the organization) The manipulator (the coworker who attempts to influence your attitude or behavior through deception or secrecy) The clueless colleague (a coworker who is insensitive to her negative impact on the work environment) The faux-smart boss (the boss who has unrealistic confidence in his own ideas and skills, often accompanied by a lack of confidence in his employees) The slacker (the coworker whose poor performance damages your performance) The bully (a colleague who uses unreasonable demands and inappropriate threats to get her way) For a quick road map, readers can turn to the cheat sheet at the end of each of these chapters. Each case chapter includes clues to look for, assumptions to remember, and principles and practices to use. For actual dialogue, the authors have added scripted responses to various tough cases. The book is designed for readers to use this book to develop practical strategies to get results.

In Mothers Unite!, a bold and hopeful new rallying cry for changing the relationship between home and the workplace, Jocelyn Elise Crowley envisions a genuine, universal world of workplace flexibility that helps mothers who stay at home, those who work part time, and those who work full time balance their commitments to their jobs and their families. Achieving this goal, she argues, will require a broad-based movement that harnesses the energy of existing organizations of mothers that already support workplace flexibility in their own ways. Crowley examines the efforts of five diverse national mothers' organizations: Mocha Moms, which aims to assist mothers of color; Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), which stresses the promotion of Christian values; Mothers & More, which emphasizes support for those moving in and out of the paid workforce; MomsRising, which focuses on online political advocacy; and the National Association of Mothers' Centers (NAMC), which highlights community-based networking. After providing an engaging and detailed account of the history, membership profiles, strategies, and successes of each of these organizations, Crowley suggests actions that will allow greater workplace flexibility to become a viable reality and points to many opportunities to promote intergroup mobilization and unite mothers once and for all.

The Future of Leadership Leadership is a relationship—but that relationship must change, say legendary organizational scholar Edgar Schein and former Silicon Valley executive Peter Schein. The vertical hierarchy, with its emphasis on formal, transactional relationships, professional distance, and all guidance coming from the top, is hopelessly inflexible and outdated. In a complex world, leadership must rely on high levels of trust and openness throughout the organization, and that can be achieved only by what they call personization and Level 2 relationships, which build the agility to make course corrections quickly. This book shows how such humble leadership has built effective cultures in a whole range of sectors: health care, government, the military, tech and innovation, and more.

Great Webinars "Great Webinars provides a profoundly practical and easy-to-follow template for creating and facilitating stimulating webinars that engage learners as active participants, while creating the kind of energetic 'buzz' that is the hallmark of successful learning experiences. The book is sure to benefit both seasoned instructors and subject matter experts who are new to teaching. I sure wish this book had existed when I began conducting webinars back in the mid 1990s."—Carol Willett, former chief learning officer, US Government Accountability Office "Not only has Cindy Clay put the adult learning principles into practice, she has created an approach to the design, development and delivery of a virtual workshop that is potentially more engaging than being face-to-face. Great Webinars captures all the essentials to creating a great on-line learning experience. . . . Thanks to the lessons learned in this book, we can now move full speed ahead with our e-learning strategy and I can now feel confident we will be teaching versus simply reaching our customers."—Karen Pacent, director, Learning and Leadership Development, United States Tennis Association "Great Webinars is written in a smart, authentic, practical, sassy, and easy-to-follow way. It reminds us to bring our participants' experience front and center if we want them to be enthralled, and the learning environment to be enriched. Cynthia Clay lets her own students tell us what is wrong with the current use of webinars and then proceeds to teach us how to build 'em better. It's like having her sit beside you saying, 'Don't worry . . . I'll get you there.' And she does."—Beverly Kaye, founder/CEO, Career Systems International; coauthor, Love 'Em or Lose 'Em and Getting Good People to Stay

“Original and wise, this masterful book shows you how to build the honesty and authenticity today’s leaders need, and positions you for success.” - Marshall Goldsmith, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Triggers Are there things you’d like to change at your company? Have you found yourself wishing your boss would change? Or your peers? What about the team you lead? Everyone in the corporate world, from the CEO to the security guard out front, wants to change something about their company. That’s the human condition at work. Where you can get stuck, however, is thinking that things will improve when the “other guy” changes—and waiting for that to happen first. In The Courage Solution, author, speaker, and CEO advisor Mindy Mackenzie shows us that the conventional approach is wrong. You can’t wait for the “other guy” to change. For true change to occur and for companies to perform better, we must all embrace one simple truth: The only thing you can reliably change or control is yourself. With truth telling the commodity in shortest supply in corporate America today, The Courage Solution challenges business professionals of any level to take actions that are deceptively simple yet require vulnerability and courage. The result? Improved impact on the job, and increased happiness and fulfillment. Drawing on 20 years of demanding executive roles at global corporations, Mindy Mackenzie reveals sharply focused, quick-read strategies in four key areas: • Part 1, You First: Taking ownership and accountability to create a career and life you love. • Part 2, Lead Your Boss: Transforming your relationship with your boss. • Part 3, Lead Your Peers: Accelerating positive peer relationships to improve business results. • Part 4, Lead Your Team: Building the most effective teams and having fun while doing it. Whether you’re a seasoned leader or just starting out in your career, The Courage Solution will help you create instant, lasting change and achieve the success you desire at work.

In this informative and accessible book, Morag Barrett shares exceptional knowledge on why a business plan and the newest product mean nothing if you don’t have your people aligned to execute the plan. Leaders rarely fail because of lack of technical ability, but do so because they don’t cultivate effective working relationships. The people skills, the so-called “soft skills,” are what get the “hard goods” delivered. Employees may join organizations because of the brand or the benefits, but they invariably choose to leave because of poor relationships. With pragmatic models and examples, Barrett shows us the four relationship behaviors and their dynamics that are at work in companies—and in life. High-level, smart information abounds in Cultivate, but so, too, does Barrett’s generous outlook and philosophy. You will learn to identify Allies, Supporters, Rivals, and Adversaries, and how to turn Adversaries into Supporters and Supporters into Allies. “Reflect on your talents and strengths. Be proud of them. When you are having a bad day (and we all do), this is the time to return to these anchors, to remind ourselves that moments of weakness, moments of missed expectations, are just that—moments. Be an Ally to yourself.” The relationship lessons you’ll learn in Cultivate will stay with you long after you’ve finished the book.
