Product Description

Product Description

Passive-aggressive coworkers are the most frustrating and obnoxious people in any workplace. The worst case of passive-aggressive behavior involves destructive attitudes such as negativity, sullenness, resentment, procrastination, “forgetting” to do assigned tasks, chronic lateness, and intentional inefficiency.

When it involves promising to do tasks others rely on — purposefully not getting them done and offering lame excuses later, and describing their behavior as non intentional – it’s exasperating for the manager. Time, energy, effort, opportunity, and sometimes money is lost.

This creates a paranoid team or work group environment — workers need to be always on the look out for “backstabbing behavior,” so they can defend themselves and preserve the quality of their own work. If the team you lead or are part of is not succeeding, your own career is at risk! Passive Aggressive behavior can and often does destroy teams and poison the workplace.

Complete with detailed strategies and reference data, this book is focused on helping workers and managers having the unfortunate reality of having to deal directly with passive aggression in the workplace.

BENEFITS: When you use the tactics proposed in our book, you will:

--recognize passive aggression in the workplace;
--learn how to deal with passive aggressive behavior at work;
--develop your managerial skills dealing with passive aggressive employees ;
--learn three strategies to respond to passive aggressive behavior;
--discover 6 guerrilla tactics to change a passive aggressive environment;
--create a long term action plan to handle passive aggressive workers.

If you are dealing with passive aggressive people at work, and they are sabotaging your best work and damaging your career, now is the time to get information and skills about how to protect yourself and your projects.

4.0 out of 5 stars very concise and direct 3 Aug 2013
By Darwin C. Green - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like that this book laid out in a very direct way practical methods of dealing with passive aggressive people. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with a passive aggressive person and would recommend it as a quick reference guide. My only criticism about the book, and this is just a personal one, is that it doesn't go very in-depth about the behavior, although I don't think it was the intention to begin with. It's very good advice, all in all, left me desiring to learn more, and provided resources in the back for further exploration of the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable advice for how to deal with passive aggression in the workplace 20 July 2013
By PM De Angelis - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book presents specific ways for dealing with passive-aggressive employees in the workplace. These types of employees can sabotage a team effort or a project and must be dealt with carefully since they can demoralize a workplace with their behavior. The advice for dealing with them is sound, reasonable and useful and should be applicable in most workplace settings. The book does not specifically talk about what to do if the passive-aggressive employee is your boss, which could change the dynamics and scenarios somewhat. On an employee to employee basis however, this book provides valuable advice for how to deal with passive aggression in the workplace and will enable employees to learn how to tackle a passive-aggressive co-worker on their team.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was just the motivation I needed... 17 May 2012
By Carolita - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My workplace had passive aggresive people and I didn't even realized. I read this book out of curiosity, since I was having trouble dealing with one of my co workers. Little did I know that reading this book would encourage me to take action in my hands and do something about it. I wasnt aware of this at the time, but I was been attacked. Reading the guidelines provided in the book help me identify what was going on, and more importantly, that it could be solved. It wasn't easy but this book helped me through it all and I can now say I'm glad I was active about this situation. Thanks for writing in a way that is easy to understand and follow. I recommend that you read it even if your don't think you have a problem yet. It is valuable to avoid any kind of conflict in any workplace.
