Synopsis

One Friday afternoon Kaveh Mir nearly had a breakdown in his office—the brutal aftermath of more than five years spent fighting or mediating wars at work. But instead of succumbing to his myriad battle scars, Mir decided to do something about them.
Wars at Work is the result. This book represents Mir’s gift to anyone who’s ever fought a workplace battle. This book is your action guide to learning how personality types contribute to work wars, and how understanding personality differences can lead to resolution and peace.
Other books have covered how you can use a single personality assessment to resolve conflicts at work. But Wars at Work is the first to show how combining a set of multiple measures creates a much richer, more powerful toolkit for solving the whole gamut of workplace problems.
Here Mir paints a compelling picture of workplace conflict using a broad brush. He identifies the eight battles most commonly fought at work. Then he creates realistic scenarios where well-developed characters illustrate how personalities might clash to enjoin those battles. Finally, he brings in a wise man—the Admiral—to help the characters understand, honour, and integrate their separate qualities to solve problems and win peace.
In Wars at Work, you’ll learn how psychometric measures can help solve:
• The battle of leadership
• The battle of career
• The battle of communication
• The battle of conflict
• The battle of change
• And much more.
This book offers a new twist on resolving workplace conflict. Whether you’re an employee, manager, or CEO, you’re likely to recognise at least one character or situation here that hits home with you. Kaveh Mir’s insightful book will give you a fresh perspective toward resolving your own “wars at work.

Mir admits that the psychometric tools he recommends require implementation and assessment by an expert, but he believes that applying them will result in “positive conflict.” For most managers, conflict that results in positive change and development would be far preferable to the alternative: d...
