Présentation de l'éditeur

We interact with coworkers all the time. Yet we have few guidelines on how to do this, on when or how to act, or on what to expect in our relationships. The book provides this; it’s premise is that we need to be supportive and fair to our colleagues in both good and bad times. This approach provides a much higher quality of work life for us all. This book is empowering. If you want to be a better colleague, do you know how to go about it? If you feel that you are being treated unfairly, do you know what you should rightly expect? Are you a minority or woman facing discrimination of some kind in the workplace? This book approaches relationships with coworkers and superiors from the point of view of ethics, related skills, and what’s good for us all. It’s a powerful guide on treating others well and being treated fairly in return. A key part of this book is its exploration of human nature: our tendencies and feelings that arise when we interact with others. It helps us understand our motives, instincts and those of others, and how we can change and improve. The book provides concrete exercises to help us practice and actualize good collegial behavior. Finally, the message of this book transcends the workplace and can inspire improved relationships with intimates, family, and friends. It is an important and unique contribution. The author has more than 40 years experience in supervising groups, working with colleagues, and teaching and studying the science of the mind and behavior.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ‘Collegial ethics promotes supporting and being fair to our colleagues’ 6 décembre 2013
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
One would think that among all the self help books that flood the Internet and brick and mortar stores that somewhere along the line an advisor would pause and remind us that not only can we work to make ourselves a more whole, kind, worthy human being, but also that we need to realize the importance of extending those same qualities into our relationships with our colleagues and, actually, everyone with whom we come into contact. Thankfully that is what Dr. Kumar has presented in this book, an immensely readable and easy to follow thought pattern of how we can better relate to our colleagues.

Michael J Kuhar, Ph.D. has impressive credentials: he is a Professor at Emory University with training that extends from brain chemistry to counseling. A Senior Fellow in the Center for Ethics at Emory, he has taught ethical concepts to students at various levels and has over 40 years investigating the science of the brain, its functions and our behavior.

In many ways Dr. Kumar’s words stem from the ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ form of ethics. Of course he goes far beyond that, but his purpose seems to be one more of asking us to simply treat our colleagues ethically, with an open mind and ear, to be supportive, fair, and caring in both good times an bad times. He supplies exercises to demonstrate and teach ethical colleague behavior. It is this gentle, genteel approach that makes the book so appealing.

Toward book’s end he quotes form a paper he read that came from a church: ‘We will be mindful of how we communicate with others by listening actively an seeking to understand, using ‘I’ statements when expressing our own views, being respectful and kind in our words tone, and body language, using e-mail and other forms of electronic communication with special care. We will seek peaceful and constructive resolutions to conflicts by communicating directly with the person or group involved instead of gossiping or speaking negatively about other sin the wider community, assuming good intentions, checking the accuracy of our perceptions an assumptions, forgiving when people make mistakes apologizing when warranted and seeking to make amends, calling on community resources when help is needed.’ An important author and thinker who is able to pass along information such as this gains our respect. This is a very helpful little book. Grady Harp, December 13

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning to Be a Supportive Colleague in the Workplace 4 décembre 2013
Par Emory Daniels - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was fascinated when reading “The Art and Ethics of Being a Good Colleague” by Michael J. Kuhar because it was such a complete, concise and easy to understand guide on how to get along with colleagues in the workplace.

The author provides clear explanations of how to treat co-workers with kindness and fairness. He presents the theory and then illustrates the major points with case studies from real life to reinforce the points he presents. The result is not only a happier workplace but a higher quality of life for employees working in a setting where collegial ethics are practiced.

The author points out that “Collegial ethics primarily has the colleague’s best interest in mind. Collegial ethics is primarily for the other person’s sake, although we all have much to gain from a more collegial world. Colleagues may resent your actions if they think you are out to advance your own agenda.”

The book is so unique in its call for justice and fairness when dealing with colleagues that it has been endorsed by the Dalai Lama. And that’s pretty impressive to me. I think it says a lot about the quality of writing and the need for fairness in the workplace.

The author, Michael J. Kuhar, is has done major research in the field of substance abuse, has written more than 900 publications, and has presented more than 300 seminars. He earned his PhD from John Hopkins University and is a professor at Emory University School of Medicine.

This is a book that should be ready by any employee, and any supervisor, regardless of how dysfunctional or healthy their workplace might be.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How to develop and nurture working relationships 25 janvier 2014
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Like it or not, politics is an essential and inevitable component of any workgroup. It is fundamental human nature for people to interact with each other in ways that we call "political." This interaction can be productive or destructive, depending on how the principals perform. Doing it right is an art that Kuhar describes in this book.
Kuhar points out that a large part of interacting properly with colleagues is to avoid adopting too negative a tone when dealing with others. Being negative is sometimes essential; the key is to not degenerate too far down that dark path. Choosing your words carefully, including those in e-mails and text messages, is always a wise choice. Nearly all readers will recognize some of their mistakes in how not to do it right, we all have to understand that we will do wrong on occasion and it is up to you to rectify it. Accepting blame for what you do wrong is often the quickest way to personal and organizational success.
It some ways the advice sounds like what a kindergarten teacher would say to children that are being unruly to each other. I can still remember my elementary school teachers telling people, "How would you feel if someone said that to you?" That doesn't make it wrong or childish, after all we learn some deep life lessons in kindergarten.
For a percentage of people that is measured by an unknown sequence of nines, their success is measured by how well they interact professionally with their co-workers. This has very little to do with liking them or seeing them socially, this is about jointly doing the work that needs to be done. After reading this book you may not like your co-workers any better, but your work environment can dramatically increase in efficiency.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required Reading For A Healthy And Happy Workplace (And Homelife) 14 janvier 2014
Par John J. Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
While we get plenty of training on how to succeed in business, there’s definitely a dearth of information about how to interact with colleagues and superiors to create a healthy and happy work environment. That’s why Dr. Michael J. Kuhar’s new book, “The Art and Ethics of Being a Good Colleague” is such an important and compelling book. While on the surface some of this may seem like common sense, the concept of actually helping and supporting the people we work with on a daily basis is a vital key to success and happiness in life.

Dr. Kuhar has spent four decades studying how workers interact. He has spent time as a researcher and professor of neuropharmacology at Emory University School of Medicine. Additionally, the author has written extensively on the subject, as well as conducting training workshops dedicated to creating and maintaining good relations among co-workers. Dr. Kuhar most basic premise lies in the creation of a workplace where individuals practice simple acts of kindness and supportiveness and actually lift up others as they lift up themselves. The author says the keys are fairness, justice and kindness in our everyday interactions with co-workers; in good times and in bad times.

Throughout “The Art and Ethics of Being A Good Colleague,” Dr. Kuhar provides the reader with countless proven examples of how his theory works. The author also offers exercises to practice in order to be a more kind and gentle co-worker. The book is an easy, enjoyable read without any heavy scientific jargon tends to bog down books of this nature. The author stresses how we must become better listeners, learn not to act passive aggressively, become more conscious of our words and body language and avoiding the confusion that often non-face-to-face communication, like emails and other electronic messaging.

What’s truly fascinating and important is that Dr. Kuhar even goes so far as to suggest that we employ these positive and pro-active behaviors with friends and family. He writes that as our world becomes a more sterile, high-tech and stressful place, there’s no better time than right now for us to incorporate these skills into our daily lives.

This primer in the power of being kind and generous to others at work has already received high praise from Behavioral Therapists to top executives and even ministers. But perhaps the best recommendation to read this book comes from the Dalai Lama, a man who is the physical embodiment of peacefulness who endorses this book. You simply cannot get better praise than that.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 An in depth directional look at the golden rule 11 mai 2014

Posted first to Blog Critics as Book Review: 'The Art and Ethics of Being a Good Colleague' by Michael J. Kuhar Ph. D.

When you are in the business of people, it is important to understand how to get the best out of them. Developing a team of talented individuals can determine the success or failure of your place of business and make your life much easier in all phases.

With so many books offering suggestion and ideas the marketplace becomes confusing as to which guide carries the best advice. The Art and Ethics of being a Good Colleague by Michael J. Kuhar Ph. D. is another take on the age old issue of getting the best out of others. When reading the chapters you are brought to mind of the golden rule. There is a great deal of common sense in the pages and the insights are interesting.

With the author’s background in ethics it is with little surprise that much of how we should interact with others includes lessons on ethics and how they are a part and parcel of our own experiences. Realizing the importance of both friends and colleagues is the bottom line of defense, a building block of life both inside of work and out. With an endorsement from His Holiness, the XIVth Dalai Lama, it is difficult to refute the nature of building our intentions.

If you are looking for a good guideline just a bit different from the rest of the pack you will find this work to fit the bill. Written more in a text book style you will find the ideas encouraging and the lessons engaging. You will also find that this work is for more than just those you work with but with anyone you interact with. Not only can you improve you own relationships both personal and at work but the impact of how you utilize the information can also go a long way to helping improve the lives of others.

This would be a great book for a discussion group. While some of the contents we have heard before, there is more of the precision and tools that help to kindle the types of relationships you desire. This can create a very diverse discussion keeping the meeting lively and entertaining .
