Peer Power: Transforming Workplace RelationshipsPeer Power provides the keys to effective interpersonal collaboration. Building on a foundation of four principles (Be Real, Extend Respect, Take Responsibility, and Build Relationships), you will expand your ability to positively influence others. The authors share common mistakes they’ve made, along with the choices they recommend to work effectively with challenging people. From the “drive-by boss” and the “faux-smart” boss to the “whiner” and the “clueless colleague,” the book exposes nine behavior patterns that may bedevil you at work. Rather than pointing fingers at others, Peer Power encourages you to modify your behavior so you can influence changes in their behavior. If your selected strategy fails, Peer Power offers a “Plan B” for your next best option.
