Overview

How do you deal with workplace interruptions? What do you say to the person who always arrives late? Do you know what to do when you're expected at a mandatory office party? What can be done about the office gossip or the contrarian who is always argumentative? Is it right for someone to campaign for politicians at your office?

Managing workplace stress includes controlling the minor irritants that get on our last nerve. In this book you'll find ways to deal with the day-to-day irritants that add to the overall stress load, affect productivity, and cost your company a lot of money.

Each of the situations noted in Last Nerve comes from real life examples, either observed in the Dale Collie's own forty years of leadership experience or from a popular radio program where he answered listener questions about workplace pet peeves.

You'll find out how to deal with things such as:

Not Enough Work
Too Much Work
Organize Your Desk Top
Good People are Leaving
Stuck in My Job
Low Tech Boss
Fear of Public Speaking
Perfume at Work
Boss is a Bully
People Aren't Doing Their Jobs

Headsets and Ear Buds
Negative During Interview
Hiring Mistake
More Work Right at Quitting Time
Everyone Else is Getting Ahead
Vacation Stress
Vending Machine Food
Boss Complains about Time Off
No Feedback - Ever
Tattoos and Piercings

You'll find out which of these irritants and many more are the responsibility of management and which you can tackle yourself. Last Nerve tells you how to correct each situation and in many cases gives you the words you need to set things right.
