Transform Your Workday from Frustrating to Fulfilling

Keith Bailey and Karen Leland surveyed over 20,000 executives, managers, and staff from around the world and discovered how everyone from CEOs to secretaries can flourish despite the ever-increasing stresses of the workplace. Watercooler Wisdom is not a 'business-as-usual' business book. It's a practical guide that offers you pertinent and powerful techniques for coping with conflict, pressure, and change--the three greatest sources of stress for workers worldwide. Use these strategies to prosper--even when circumstances seem to conspire against you. Find solutions to work problems inside yourself rather than waiting endlessly for your circumstances to change, and you can become the smarter person at work you were always meant to be.

Learn smart ways to:

*Engage your inner resources to create a meaningful work life
*Master the 'smart people' skills for facing difficult people and tense times
*Focus your energy on what matters most and avoid the lure of the trivial
*Design a 'work makeover' to accelerate your satisfaction and productivity

An excellent book for anyone who wants to bring more consciousness into the way they work and improve their effectiveness and the way others respond to them.
