Description - Working with You is Killing Me by Katherine Crowley

Scratch the surface of any company and you uncover a group of people often rubbing each other the wrong way in a hotbed of emotions-people feeling anxious about performance, angry with co-workers, and misunderstood by management. Leaders are burnt-out and assistants are buried in resentment. WORKING WITH YOU IS KILLING ME helps readers "unhook" from these emotional pitfalls in the office and work with any personality, whether dealing with a peer, subordinate, or boss. Readers learn about the most common types of destructive workplace relationships including "The Empty Pit," where a coworker starts out as nice but turns needy and "The Saboteur," where sweet talk quickly turns into sabotage. Valuable insights include:midTake control by managing up: Instead of letting emotions get the better of you, avoid frustration by training your boss to meet regularly and always be prepared to report on your projects.midBusiness Parenting: Employers should learn that being boss is always like being a parent and employees need to know exactly what's expected of them.
