Issue 77 - 04 | Principles Under Pressure: Working in Adversarial Relationships

By Aryanne Oade
Published Dec. 8, 2010 12:00 p.m.
“This manifesto is about how to work with such an adversarial character, whether they are your boss, peer or team member. It is about how to use the specific behavior you need to use to help you manage the unclear boundaries, ambivalent motives and occasional duplicitous conduct that characterizes adversarial working relationships. By the end of the manifesto I hope you will have the insight and interpersonal know-how you need to handle these tricky co-workers more effectively and retain the degree of influence in your work with them that you would like to have.”
