From the Publisher

Keith Bailey and Karen Leland surveyed over 20,000 executives, managers, and staff from around the globe and discovered how everyone from CEOs to secretaries can flourish amidst the ever-increasing stresses of the workplace. Watercooler Wisdom: is not a "business as usual" business book. It is a primer, a practical, down-to-earth user’s manual that provides pertinent and powerful techniques for coping with conflict, pressure, and change-—the three greatest stressors for workers worldwide. This engaging book will help you to:

• Engage your inner resources to create a meaningful work life • Master the ‘smart people’ skills for facing difficult people and tense times • Focus your energy on what matters most and avoid the lure of the trivial • Design a work makeover to accelerate your satisfaction and productivity

I love this book! No job is ever going to be perfect. You're always going to have to deal with difficult people, changing times, and a heavy workload. These authors understand this and they give you the skills and information you need to succeed despite your circumstances, not because of the them. Watercooler Wisdom gives help for real-world work problems.

As soon as I opened this book I knew it was just what I wanted, practical ways of dealing with many of the difficult things I have to deal with at work. I found so many useful tools, to use in my work life, but also in my personal life as well. This book is so easy to read and apply right away. I don't know anyone who couldnt find something useful in this book. It has given me a clearer insight in how to deal with all the different personalities I come in contact with everyday. The section on Getting in Step With Working Styles really has been so valuable, instead of getting frustrated with the people I work with and getting nowhere I now can recognize their unique styles and am able to have a better rapport with them. It's brillant!

Watercooler Wisedom is a great book for anyone having to deal with others in all kinds of work situations. I work as a freelancer and handle all aspects and interactions of my business myself. I recently had a negative interaction with a client on job I was doing and the advice form this book really helped me to put matters into perspective by putting a strategy into place so that things could be resolved; issues that really mattered were effectively communicated with no harm done, ultimately saving more me than just income.
