Résumé de The power of a good fight

Your boss is a brilliant but difficult man. He's risen like a rocket in your organization but every time he barks and lunges, you cringe, cower or run for cover. Are you ready for a better way to deal with pit bull attacks? Do you know how to have a good fight?! Do you know how to handle bosses who feast on conflict like pit bulls employees whose golden retriever loyalty keeps them from speaking up even when they know you're wrong colleagues who flee from disputes like roadrunners or co-workers who hiss, spit and triangulate conflicts like cobras? Are you ready to learn how to soar like an eagle, using your power to fight when you need to, even in the midst of a dispute? The Power of a Good Fight helps managers discover not only their teams' own style but how to use it to their advantage.
