I think anyone in a stressful work environment would benefit from reading this book. I read it very closely and highlighted about half the book. I know it will take some time for me to assimilate all of the suggestions, but this book planted the seeds and should surely help me cope better in the future with work-related difficulties.
You should be forewarned: you'll probably realize a lot of your stress is self-induced.Read more ›
The theme here is "you be the adult." Even if your co-workers are acting like a bunch of ignorant sixth graders, you must rise above it. You're better than that. You'll forgive, work, and move on. Office politics is a fleeting and shallow endeavor. Keep your eyes on what you want in life. Many of those around you will be forgotten in a few years time and there's no reason to obsess over their opinions. They don't matter and, while you should be as kind and friendly as is possible, your long-term goals and aspirations are what counts. With annoying and dominant co-workers, when you lose your temper you tranfer power to them and give them the satisfaction that they have been looking for. Being above the frey is the last thing they want, but that's exactly where you should be.
