However, if, like me, you're a generally positive person that's no stranger to overcoming odds and have been stretched beyond your normally high capacity to manage a stressful work environment...you will probably be offended, not relieved, by reading a survival tip that says "stay positive"
The rest of the tips in the book are basically along those lines - they remind me of those cheesy cards with the cat hanging from a tree branch that say "hang in there!" across the bottom.
I was seeking strategies to manage my work environment that were a little more philosophical and thought provoking - things that go deeper than "get tough" (another inspirational greeting card tip found in the book). I was looking for something meaty and full of personal challenges to help counter the incredible intensity of my job. When your work feels so intense, it's almost more disheartening for a book to take such a flippant approach to helping you manage it.
Basically it feels like the writer has interviewed a lot of people in bad work situations, but has never actually been in a really bad one themselves. As a result it comes across as detached and fluffy.
Based on research, authors share real examples in a personal tone that helps readers related to the topic and situations. Yet, the discussion and strategies or walk always are broad enough where you don’t have to be in that exact situation to benefit.
I learned a lot. As an educator, I will be able to use what insight I gain with students, parents, peers, and those that lead me.
The biggest take away was that we have a new gen of leaders with didn’t life experiences and strategies for managing...under pressure asure for accountability and performance....and how they lead or don’t lead will impact future workplaces. However, it won’t be about resolving all these conflicts, we need to look at how conflicts can be managed in workplaces...managed in ways that help people grown and companies or organisations be more positive places to work.
Shares traits and examples of leaders and situations to watch out for as well as some fabulous strategies to support.
Will be giving as gifts to all my friends!
If only every boss leader owner whatever would read this they will likely find themself and
realize mistakes they make daily
