WOMEN’S INTERPERSONAL CONFLICTS WITH FEMALE COWORKERS: A PATH TO RESOLUTION
Dr. Myra G. Jacob
MYRA JACOB is a writer, international businesswoman, and keen observer of people in the workplace. She has worked in corporations in 15 countries. During that time, she observed the challenges women faced when they had interpersonal conflicts with each other. Those observations made her curious to know more. That is why she decided to conduct extensive qualitative research on women’s interpersonal conflicts with female coworkers in the United States. During her research, she interviewed over thirty women about their interpersonal conflicts with female coworkers. After recording each woman’s account of her interpersonal conflict, she analyzed the data by using a qualitative research coding process to discover women’s behavioral patterns and the process used by women to resolve their interpersonal conflicts with each other. Based on the results of her research and the interest and enthusiasm shown by many for her research topic, she decided to write her book entitled: Women’s Interpersonal Conflicts with Female Coworkers: A Path to Resolution.
WOMEN'S INTERPERSONAL CONFLICTS WITH FEMALE COWORKERS: A PATH TO RESOLUTION is unique because it presents a research-based process that women believe is necessary to resolve interpersonal conflicts with female coworkers. Additionally, each woman's description of her experience is told in a narrative short story that enables readers to gain insight into the situation and learn from women's mistakes and key takeaways. Each story told in women's own words serves as a building block for the conflict resolution process that women found to be essential when resolving conflicts with female coworkers. Moreover, the book tells the compelling story of each woman from the perspective of being in a specific age group. Presenting the stories in age categories enables readers to see the varied approaches women use to handle conflicts with their female coworkers at different periods of life. The final section of the book illustrates common themes and behavioral patterns exhibited by women when in conflict with a female coworker, lessons learned, valuable tips on actions to take when embroiled in interpersonal conflicts, and self-defeating traps to avoid.
This book is meant for women of all ages who have experienced interpersonal conflicts with female coworkers, bosses, or direct reports. It is meant for those who have not yet had those challenges, but who would like guidance should they need it. It could also help male supervisors to better understand their female direct reports. Human Resources (HR) professionals are often called on to mediate in conflict situations; therefore, this book could help them gain insight into the necessary process for women to reach conflict resolution with intragender peers. Other audiences for this book include psychology practitioners and executive coaches who can help women deal with same-gender interpersonal conflicts in the workplace.
I am looking for a creative use of a combination of colors and shades for the cover and fonts. I would like "Women's Interpersonal Conflicts with Female Coworkers" to be in a bold print that will pop out, and "A Path to Resolution" should be in smaller fonts that still pop out with color and boldness.
What to avoid
I would like designers to avoid using stock images on the cover. This is because I am concerned about violating copyrights, and I do not wish to purchase the rights to use any stock images. In any case, it is typical for non-fiction books to use only text on the cover.
