The Drama-Free Office describes four energy-draining personalities that sabotage workplace collaboration and synergy. The authors blend humorous and relatable case studies with proven tools for managing “office saboteurs”—subordinates, co-workers, and the boss.
The authors’ research draws on years of experience working with more than 2,500 CEOs and their executive teams, combined with their own father-daughter dynamic. They break down the four major drama roles—the complainer, the cynic, the caretaker, and the controller—and lay out a detailed roadmap for managing difficult people in difficult situations.
Readers will see their coworkers (and themselves) in this entertaining and action- oriented blueprint for addressing the dramatic behaviors that cripple so many teams. The authors detail simple methods for defusing office drama and fostering clean, authentic interactions. The Drama-Free Office puts an end to office drama for good!
