More About Harmony at Work

Professional Relationships Are Like Music

These days, it’s not enough to be brilliant, driven, and technically skilled. Success in business and in life is defined more broadly if you want to hit the high notes. You need meaningful experiences, solid people skills, and strong contacts. The rules for leaders and their team members have changed. Employers aren’t satisfied with you merely hitting or even exceeding your goals. They want you to have a team of people who would run through walls for you. You need emotional intelligence to work together effectively with diverse personalities, with people who often come from many different cultures and may be located in different cities.


Human Relationships Are Complex

They are rarely static, so that our attempts to control and tame them may seem elusive. What worked with one person may backfire with the next. What succeeded yesterday might completely fail tomorrow. Without a big-picture view of the key relationships in our lives, we are tempted to focus only on immediate problems and short-term solutions. We are reluctant to examine the dynamics of our interactions or the underlying cause of repeated frustrations.


Learn How to Harmonize 

Harmony at Work defines six stages through which most relationships evolve. By understanding and anticipating the characteristics of every stage, you are better positioned to know how to approach the challenges that may emerge for each one. You will learn to create harmony within work teams and interact effectively with coworkers, so that you create beautiful music together when everyone sings the same song well.


Harmony at Work provides a personalized yet systematic way to look at common patterns in relationships. It links popular theories and tools to detailed examples and exercises to help you apply this general information to your own situations. The author’s vast experience, her practical suggestions, and sense of humor create an enjoyable read. You can blend these resources to change disharmony at work (and at home) into perfect pitch collaboration without the flats and sharps often encountered in today’s workplace.
