Lynn Eisaguirre knows the real world of work. Her examples are startingly realistic! Most importantly, she gives clear strategies for viewing and handling conflict differently. In the end, after reading this book, you will probably become an advocate and tell others that "conflict is good!" Lynn makes you think! You may not agree with everything, but you will definitely think about your own approach and explore ways to manage conflict differently! Business managers who handle conflict in the workplace must read this book!
Perfect timing Jul 15, 2002
Lynne's book arrived at the perfect time! As hospitals deal with nursing shortages as well as other shortages of healthcare workers in the U.S., managers need to make the most of the staff we have. We owe it to our patients and the physicians we serve to be the best we can be each day. The attempt to stretch ourselves to cover all the requirements of safe patient care with overwhelming budget cuts have led to short fuses and easy frustrations on a daily basis in acute healthcare. The Power of a Good Fight brings hope and ease to managers in what often seems to be an unmanageable work world, by simply and powerfully taking us step by step through all the What-ifs we face. Ahhh...It feels like having a coach at my side. I liked the book and plan to pass it around!
The Power OF A Good Book! Jul 8, 2002
Every woman in the work world should read the Power Of A Good Fight. I am not a huge fan of business books, but a close friend recommended I read this book. I am glad she did.
Lynne Eisaguirre explains why actually starting a fight can be the best way to improve your work environment. Eisaguirre's advice is right on target. I tried out her suggestions and have had a great response. From now on, I plan to address work place issues as they come up, just as I always have in my personal life.
Fits every office! Jul 8, 2002
Lynne Eisaguirre's 5 personality styles describe everyone I've ever worked with! I have had conflicts and situations at work that would have been be better, more productive, and a LOT less stressful if I had read this book earlier. I learned how to approach someone better and how to be more confrontable myself! She really produces creativity out of every situation. Companies should buy this book for thier employees and leave in the office lounge for EVERYONE to read! It's a great way to improve the atmosphere and environment of every office!
If I Had Known Then What Lynne Eisaguirre Tells Me Now . . . Jul 8, 2002
If I had known years ago what Lynne Eisaguirre writes about the various conflict styles in her book, The Power Of A Good Fight, my career and life would have moved along a less rocky road. I now understand that one partner I worked for had a 'roadrunner' approach to conflict resolution; the other a 'pitbull' approach. Although I realize possessing this information would not have changed the way my bosses approached conflict resolution, I'm certain what would have changed, was my approach to them and their conflicts. The Power Of A Good Fight offers valuable knowledge and skills about effectively dealing with different approaches to conflict resolution. This would have improved my career and life had I known then what Lynne tells me now in The Power Of A Good Fight.
