Have you ever wanted to turn the tables on your boss and “manage your manager”? Today, Vicki speaks with one of the authors of The Drama Free Office, written to help you deal with an overbearing ‘office saboteur’! Also today, learn how teaching your children resilience will help them be prepared for life in a challenging world.

Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg wrote Letting Go with Love and Confidence to help parents “let go”- in other words, raising children in such a way that they are prepared to navigate a difficult world on their own, while still recognizing the importance of a healthy family relationship. The book offers tips and strategies that apply the principles of resilience to guide children towards independence, and answers the tough questions that challenge every parents, such as when is it appropriate for a child to go to the mall alone, get a cell phone, or (gasp!) go on a first date! Dr. Ginsburg is a pediatrician who specializes in Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He also serves as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania, which serves the homeless youth of Philadelphia.

Along with Jim Warner, Kaley Klemp is the co-author of The Drama-Free Office: A Guide to Healthy Collaboration with Your Team, Coworkers, and Boss. The pair have spent over 15 years researching and conducting intense, candid sessions with over 3,000 senior leaders in executive teams, government, partnerships, family businesses, elite sports teams and other environments. They have determined that almost all drama-laden personas can be distilled down to the antics of four sabotaging roles. Diagnosing and directly managing these four roles is the gateway out of drama. Klemp earned degrees in International Relations and Sociology, with a focus on Organizational Behavior, from Stanford University.
