How Can You Turn Adversaries Into Allies? with Bob Burg

Bob Burg @BobBurg has some fascinating advice for how to turn adversaries into allies with his new book Adversaries into Allies: Win People Over Without Manipulation or Coercion. As teachers, we never know when we're going to have a tough situation walk through our door or barge into our inbox, so his advice is very helpful and timely for all of us – especially during high-stress times of the school year. (Like testing or the end of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere.)

Bob Burg helps educators turn adversaries into allies.

Who will want to listen to this show

Everyone who might have someone get angry with them. That's all of you. We all need this relational advice and Bob gives some good ones.

I particularly like with Bob talks about how you view adversaries — are they really your adversary? Some of his thoughts are reminiscent of Dale Carnegie, but with a slightly different take.

You'll want to pick up Adversaries into Allies. Bob has a thought provoking blog and I was quite intrigued at his recent post about Why So Many People Sabotage Their Happiness. We see this in kids (and teachers) who just seem to wreck the very thing that can bring them joy.

We all must challenge ourselves to improve our interpersonal relations with parents, administrators, colleagues and students.
