Every time I need information about a situation I want/ need to manage - eg having a difficult conversation with an employee - I wind up on Amazon, where there's usually a bunch of literature. But ordering and reading an entire book for every particular difficult or challenging situation I encounter - either at work or in my personal life - is an OK theoretical strategy which unfortunately does not transfer well into the real world.
What alternative strategies are there?
