I read a lot of management and leadership books. This was an excellent book. With a staff of 35 more than 75% women, my workplace is a hotbed for drama. I read the book, hoping to come up with an idea or two to minimize all the drama. In this book, I found myself making an extensive to-do-list because I found so many ways, my senior staff and I were doing things wrong and things we could do better, much better. I found ideas to improve my management skills and communicate better with my staff. I ...more

I can totally see how this book will be useful at work and home. Surprisingly good. I actually want to own this now that I've read the library's copy.

Great, great books. It was a total eye-opener.
I would highly recommend it if you even just suspect you have drama in your workplace.
Come on, be fair... Who doesn't?

Everyone I’ve mentioned this title to, loves it!

Stop Workplace DramaI mean who wants all the drama?

Like many catch phrases and cliché’s, not everyone has the same definition of drama. Chism defines drama rather globally as: “any obstacle to your peace and prosperity.”

While I was interested in the book’s title and have talked to the author on the phone, I didn’t really know what to expect. What I found was a book with an eight-step process for stopping workplace drama. Each step is described in e

Excellent book for anyone in the working world. Don't make the mistake of thinking this book is just for supervisors. I identified many things I am guilty of and am working to change them. Lots of good information and solutions as well. I would recommend this to those in college as well so that they can develop a good foundation of skills before entering their career.

This book felt poorly organized and offered few concrete behaviors to meet the goal suggested by the title. The anecdotes were interesting, but I never got the feeling that anyone's problems were actually solved.
