Calm down combatants
Convince passive-aggressives to open up
Teach narcissists the importance of the team
This book helps managers decide what the right course of action iswhether it means chastising negative behavior, encouraging positive outlooks, separating certain folks, creating teams for success, giving employees warnings, and/or firing the ones who are pretty much rotten through and through. This book is essential reading for any manager looking to ensure a pleasant, productiveand fruitfulwork environment.
