Oh, conflict and control. What a task to successfully navigate controlling behavior!
The good news is, it can be done! With the help from this book, “Dealing with People You Can’t Stand,” by Dr. Rick Brinkman and Dr. Rick Kirschner, you can hone your skills when working with someone who appears to be controlling. Brinkman and Kirschner offer tools to bring out the best in people at their worst. They explain, “conflict occurs when the emphasis in a relationship is on the differences between people.” (p. 42)
