-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.-
--Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager(R) and Leading at a Higher Level
Collections strong in books on business management will find the narrowed focus and insights especially important in It's All Your Fault at Work. More and more workers have high-conflict personalities: the business manager's challenge is on how (or if) to manage them. As narcissistic or bullying people dominate the workplace and spread discard, it's important that managers not only understand the signs and effects of these personalities, but realize their options in responding to workplace hostility and how to set limits. This book packs in specifics, from responding to misinformation and considering who in the workplace fits the description of a 'high conflict personality' to making the most of workplace atmosphere and re-directing conflict to more positive results. No manager should be without this analysis.

In this environment, high-conflict personalities struggle more than ever to manage their extremes and maintain control of their lives and their relationships with others.
