People Styles at Work: Making Bad Relationships Good & Good Relationships Better by Robert BoltonWith so much diversity in the workplace, its no wonder people problems abound. Yet it is possible to overcome personality conflicts by understanding other peoples differences instead of merely reacting to them emotionally.
A sequel to Social Style, Management Style, this book presents a comprehensive behavioral science model for understanding four different people styles. The authors explain how readers can:
* identify their own styles and how they appear to others
* relate effectively -- no matter how others react to them
* create common ground with different people while retaining their own individuality
* evaluate the people styles of others and discover how to flex their styles to match
Readers will learn the characteristic strengths and weaknesses of each style -- driver, analytical, amiable, and expressive -- and how these characteristics can create stress in the other behavior types. Theyll discover how to minimize these stresses by getting in synch with the style-based behavior patterns of others.
People Styles at Work
In my short time at Georgia State, I have learned one thing about our students regarding collaborationthey arent very good at it. But I have also learned something about myselfIm not very good at teaching it. In fact, teaching collaboration is tough to do. In the mentoring packet Elizabeth and I put together, we lean on project management as a way to ensure effective work teams, and we believe in the importance and usefulness of project management. But that set of tactics still doesnt address the fact that poor collaboration is often due to poor interpersonal skills.
Robert Bolton and Dorothy Grover Bolton. People disagree because they have different ways of thinking, communicating, handling stress and dealing with problems. Communications experts Robert Bolton and Dorothy Grover Bolton show you how to improve your relationships. Understanding these styles could help you work around people with difficult personality traits and anticipate their behavior. This practical, if not terribly innovative, manual offers insights into human nature that you can apply in your professional and personal life. Everyone thinks, makes decisions, handles emotions, manages stress and deals with conflict differently. That is to be expected.
People Styles at Work and beyond. This approach to understanding people is distinguished from many others in that it focuses on behaviour rather than.
