    “Making Things Right At Work” is a great read for improving work relationships, especially in today’s toxic work environments. In a day and age, when the workplace is getting harder to endure for many people, this title is a timely read. Around 160 pages, many topics are covered, including:

    – What causes fractured work relationships.

    – The various ways we can be offended at work.

    – The benefits of active (really listening) listening – there are many.

    – How to create of harmony at work (uh, “leaders” and managers, you really need to read this chapter!).

    – Various ways we use indirect communication.

    – The ways we shade the truth.

    – Why we need to consider other peoples’ point of view (you don’t have to agree with them, but you do need to listen!).

    – Reasons why people don’t apologize.

    – Different apology languages.

    – Ways we can create trust in the workplace.

    What I like about the title:

    – Easy to read, understand, and apply.

    – Much of the content is common sense, however, we don’t always use common sense at work!

    – Smooth transition from chapter to chapter.

    – Full of good practical insights.

    – Written from an admittingly Christian worldview.

    Excellent read and will be read again. Will be a helpful future reference. I was given a review copy by Northfield/Moody Publishers in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
