Can't We All Just Get Along?

The Working Woman Blog Tour



Ever wondered...
  • Why does one coworker become
    a best friend while another becomes
    a bitter enemy? 
  • Why is the workplace a delight for some
        but a drudgery for others?
  • What are the warning signs for an ungodly
        workplace relationship?

A Woman and Her Workplace helps women consider their part in workplace relationships. Rosemary Flaaten reveals attitudes that wreak havoc in dealing with others at our jobs and shows how to replace these thoughts with strong biblical principles—ultimately transforming your work environment.

For most people, the workplace is their home-away-from-home. We spend most of our waking hours with coworkers and employers. No blood relation, but yet we must build healthy relationships with them if we hope to excel at our work and enjoy our careers. Just like families, our work families are disturbed by dysfunctional issues. Interactions at work are often anything but ideal, let alone godly.

We find someone to vent about the grumpy boss, that arrogant team member, the lazy coworker who gets by doing nothing, and the undermining woman who makes our lives miserable. Yes, it’s easy to blame them for our workplace woes—but it’s better to look inward at what we have control to change.
A Woman and Her Workplace shows how God can perform a deep heart transformation within us so His love flows through us to the people in our workplaces. By delving into the issues that wreak havoc on our workplace relationships, author Rosemary Flaaten provides readers the help they need to develop and apply strong biblical principles of humility, integrity, forgiveness, grace, and celebration in the workplace.

Through discussing relationships such as boss to staff, woman to man, woman to woman, and teamwork, Rosemary guides women to develop healthy interactions in their workplaces. It makes sense to invest some effort into the relationships where we spend the lion’s share of our waking hours. This book isn’t just for women, though. Men find the book gives them insight into how to make the best of their working relationships with the opposite sex in their offices.

    Jenny,
    I was forunate when I worked at a school that the staff had a devotional and prayer time before school started.That was so good. I think we make friends at work with the people that are kinda like us and that we have things in common with. As for emenies, I don't know, I guess some people just rub you the wrong way. I don't work anymore, but would love the grand prize for my desk at home!

    How timely is this book! I'm in a situation now where I get along with both my co-worker and my boss... but they don't get along together. I'm feeling extremely "in the middle" which is exactly where I don't want to be. By staying out of it, I have offended by co-worker and now her attitude toward me has become very cool. I'm stuck and your book sounds like it may have the answers I need. Thank you!
