Humanize The Workplace

A Listmania! list by O. K. (Chicago, IL)
The list author says: "Workplace is where people spend most of their waking hours. Our work relations can be an inspiration, or they can drag us down and make life a living nightmare. To advance in any field, people should be able to manage their work environment and deal with any kind of unwanted behavior in the workplace, be it on the part of management or co-workers. Workplace should be safe for success; you should be able to promote your career based on merit, without being distracted by interpersonal tensions and "office politics." These are books that help to improve the workplace and teach good interpersonal skills."
