When two valued employees can't get along, it affects the entire office. What do you do when terminating an employee isn't an option, but for the sake of productivity the problem can't go on any longer? How do you achieve workplace harmony?
I know it's only February, and my new book--Turn Enemies Into Allies: The Art of Peace in the Workplace--isn't due for release by Career Press until May 1, but I'm excited that: 1) it's available for pre-order now, and 2) I can give you a preview of what's in the book, so you can decide if it's something you might want to own and have on your desk or your laptop.
So with professional help from my friends at Seacoast Flash and Rayaonassignment, I created five videos last month that are ready for prime time on YouTube. You're seeing them before anyone else (except my mom), although later this week this first one will be on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
As you know, this book developed from a series of posts right here on Ki Moments about five years ago. The videos are brief looks at the Introduction and each phase of the book:
- Bowing In
- Entering and Blending
- Bowing Out
This first video introduces the overall format, what you can expect from the book, and the first and most important concept--how to position yourself so that you're ready to coach two valued coworkers back to a centered working relationship.
You can watch the first video by clicking here. In just a little over two minutes, you'll see me explain how to use the book to empower your employees to work out their differences and create a workplace that is peaceful and cooperative.
As each video in the series becomes available, I'll send a new link. I'd very much like to hear what you think. Please write your comments below. And in the meantime, enjoy this amazing day!
