Isn't it ironic? We're taught math, science and history in school -
we're not taught how to deal with difficult individuals - without
becoming one ourselves. We're not taught how to keep rude, angry,
aggressive people from ruining our day (life)!
In these stressful times, it's more important than ever to learn how
to think before we speak so our communications lead to cooperation, not conflict.
This book introduces EXACTLY what to say and do when dealing with
people who are upset, unreasonable or not treating you with the
respect you want, need and deserve. It also teaches how to model gracious, diplomatic, pro-active communication so people are motivated to respond in kind.
