If we are physically injured at work, workers' compensation immediately becomes available. But if we suffer inner, emotional damage, it's not even acknowledged. Often it's our best qualities that can get us into trouble-trying too hard and caring too much.

Whether your stress triggers are difficult customers, insensitive bosses, or scheming coworkers, Making the Job Work For You provides "head and heart armor" for workers on the front lines. Author Patrick Mason offers an array of strategies, tips, and techniques to help you attack stress. He lays out practical techniques to help you handle immediate situations and exposes core value differences that lead us into conflict.

With this handy guide, you'll be able to walk into work a different person: mentally prepared, emotionally balanced, and ready to handle whatever comes your way with a smile.
