In his recently published book, “The Art and Ethics of Being a Good Colleague,” Dr. Michael Kuhar rolls out guidelines and skills to help readers improve their relationships with their coworkers.
The book is anchored by the philosophy of “collegial ethics,” which “promotes supporting and being fair to our colleagues,” according to Kuhar. From his research and experience, little or no formal training on this kind of ethics is widely available. More attention on collegial ethics is needed as “collegial behavior is becoming more and more important in an interactive world,” Kuhar writes.
Kuhar directs readers’ attention to collegial ethics through a variety of perspectives and circumstances. From addressing conflict among colleagues to giving credit to others to employing empathy in the workplace, he helps readers understand how to navigate challenges appropriately, better relate to coworkers, and create a pleasant work environment.
“The Art and Ethics of Being a Good Colleague” is available on www.amazon.com for $12.13.
