The award-winning book that gives readers a method for handling the increasingly-outrageous behavior of narcissists and high-conflict people at work.
Increasingly, high-conflict peopleespecially narcissists and bulliesare showing up in the workplace. It's All Your Fault at Work! addresses ways of managing the behavior of high-conflict people (HCP).
Based on Bill Eddy's high-conflict personality theory, the book explains how to recognize predictable patterns of behavior and illustrates with over a dozen examples the simple four-step C.A.R.S. method to calm the HCP, analyze options, respond to hostility, and set limits on extreme behavior.
“ This book belongs in every leader’s library. Although I believe there’s a pearl of good in everyone, some people’s pearl is hard to find. You may not be able to change a high conflict personality, but by using Bill Eddy’s and Georgi DiStefano’s techniques, you’ll be able to keep the focus on solutions rather than arguments. ”
