As cofounders of the leadership coaching and training firm Ridge Associates, authors Robert Bolton and Dorothy Grover teach that good interpersonal communication is essential to getting things done. In this comprehensive and practical guide, they offer a proven method for understanding the key behavioral styles of those around you (including your own) and explain how you can leverage the strengths and weaknesses of each to relate to others--even the most difficult of coworkers--more winsomely. People Styles at Work . . . and Beyond does this by offering a self-assessment to determine which style you are and then uses that information to teach readers how to: recognize how they come across to other coworkers; read others' body language and behavior to identify the best ways to work with them; make small adjustments that will dramatically increase the quality and productivity of their interactions; find common ground with different people while retaining their individuality; relate less defensively and more effectively no matter how others act At work, at home, and even while you’re out running errands, your ability to relate to others affects how well you get things done. Now including all new material on personal relationships, parenting, and more, this is the ultimate how-to can help any reader avoid conflicts and enhance important relationships.

Book Description:

Why is it so hard to work well with some people? People Styles at Work...and Beyond presents a comprehensive, practical, and proven method readers can use to:

· recognize how they come across to other coworkers

· read others’ body language and behavior to identify the best ways to work with them

· make small adjustments that will dramatically increase the quality and productivity of their interactions

· find common ground with different people while retaining their individuality

· relate less defensively and more effectively—no matter how others act

The book reveals the strengths and weaknesses of four different people styles, providing practical techniques that work both on the job and off. Now including all new material on personal relationships, parenting, and more, this is the ultimate guide anyone can use to enhance even the most difficult relationships.

From the Back Cover:

At work, and in other spheres of life, how well you relate with others affects your ability to get things done. What you may not realize is that all people exhibit one of several different behavioral “styles,” which determine how they think, make decisions, communicate, manage time and stress, and deal with conflict. By understanding which “people style” you’re dealing with, you can establish rapport with someone more easily, become more persuasive, and avoid miscommunication and the possibility of rubbing someone the wrong way.

People Styles at Work . . . And Beyond reveals the strengths and weaknesses of each style, includes a self-assessment for determining which style you are, and presents a proven approach you can use to: identify the best ways to work with others based on their body language and behavior · recognize how you come across to coworkers · make small adjustments that will dramatically increase the quality and productivity of your interactions · find common ground with different people · relate less defensively and more effectively—no matter how others act.

Now including all new material on personal relationships, parenting, and more, this is the ultimate guide that has helped hundreds of thousands of people make even their most difficult relationships much more productive and pleasant.
