    Whether you are in the workplace, work from home, stay at home,

    Whether you are in the workplace, work from home, stay at home, whatever the situation, the truth is that we are going to meet, deal and have to work with people who we may find to be frustrating or as part of the title goes, seems just way out there, that they challenge our patience and nerves.

    In comes, "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People " by Elizabeth B. Brown; Although it maybe geared more for the workplace, there are insights that anyone can take away from the book that would help deal with day to day situations, that the reader may find themselves in.

    Reading, "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People ", a good follow up to Elizabeth Brown's book, "Living Successfully with Screwed-Up People",there are practical insights that can be taken away, really for any situation that a person may and will find themselves in.

    Maybe its the relative, the neighbor next door, or if you work from home or at the office, dealing with difficult customers or co-workers, really, is there isn't a situation, where one would find themselves struggling to work with conflicting personalities?

    Dealing with social media situations are a bit more awkward since its often difficult (or easy, depending how you look at it) to read the emotional tone and intent behind words, but when dealing with people, one on one, even over the phone, being able to work successfully with others, is such a vital skill and act of diplomacy that is needed, in an ever challenging world.

    The book is informative, lighten with a humorous, "I've been there" approach and its not about changing other people....we all know that's not possible, but its about changing our approach and how we react to the situations that we come across.

    "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People " offers valuable insights that challenges, you, the reader, on how to deal with other people that you may encounter in a way that is diplomatic but also realizing that people are going to act in ways that may rub us the wrong way, but we have the power and ability to choose how we react to those situations.

    So if you are finding yourself in the workforce, or even as a work at home parent, starting up, building or maintaining a home business, small business or part of the workforce, on any level, check out, "Working Successfully with Screwed-Up People ".
