You know who they are; the people who push all of the wrong buttons when speaking with others. They offend, they insult, and they make things unpleasant. For some, it’s intentional, and for others, it’s a cluelessness that boggles the senses. Whatever the source of the problem, most of us will find adequate comebacks within Powerful Phrases for Dealing with Difficult People. Renee Evenson has composed a highly insightful compendium of situations, conversations and explanations designed to arm the reader with effective communication tactics.

Utilizing a simple formula for resolving conflicts the “right way”, Evenson recommends that those who interact with difficult people engage in resolution-seeking behaviors.

Various types of co-worker conflicts are discussed in detail, including the loud mouth, meeting monopolizing, gossiping, excessively emailing, credit-taking people who make us cringe and fume.

Evenson wisely points out how body language and voice tone can sabotage a healthy attempt at solving relational conflicts.

Of particular usefulness is advice that deals with ways to approach ten different types of bosses.
