Risky Business tells in plain language the specific behaviors that indicate an employee has the potential to become violent, and it tells managers what to do--and what not to do--to prevent workplace violence. Author Lynne Falkin McClure describes in clear detail the eight major categories of behavioral clues to violence and includes anecdotes from work settings to help managers and others identify potentially violent employees. Most importantly, she emphasizes the precautions and steps managers must take when they see these “clues” in an employee’s behavior and how to create and maintain a work environment that is likely to protect everyone.Including the hiring--appraisal--training process, Risky Business focuses on system-wide, ongoing prevention steps organizations can take to protect everyone in the workplace. The book points out for readers informal organizational ‘policies’that unwittingly encourage potentially dangerous behaviors in employees and then offers alternative ‘policies’that create and maintain a safer environment. Managers, members of personnel, and public relations representatives learn how to deal effectively with the fears of workers and customers should a violent event occur that affects the company’s morale and image. However, readers are certain to gain the skills and foresight necessary to avert disaster before it strikes.Lynne Falkin McClure, PhD, is a management consultant, workshop designer/facilitator, and public speaker in Tempe, Arizona. President of McClure Associates Management Consultants, Inc., since 1980, she specializes in work relationships and conducts inhouse workshops for corporations and government agencies. Through The McClure Institute in Tempe, she offers intensive 5--day courses for executives, directors, and managers, as well as for EAP specialists and mental health professionals, on how to identify and prevent potential workplace violence. Dr. McClure has been a guest on several national shows, including appearances on “Maury Povich,” “Between the Lines” (Associated Press Broadcast News), “Good Day Atlanta,” “Market Talk” (KWHY-TV, America’s first all-financial station), and “Wireless Flash” (San Diego).

This is an easy to read book, which opened my eyes to the types of personnel who may pose dangerous behaviors at work. The book spells out the behaviors and actions that may be exhibited by employees, which may signal a tendency toward violent or dangerous actions. The book also give guidelines to supervisors as to how to handle these employees and any situation that may arise.

Had to read it for a class but will keep it as a "go-to" when dealing with difficult employees.

This book has to be the most crap I've ever read. I could easily see hundreds of thousands of dollars is discrimination lawsuits from "managers" deciding people are high risk based on the determinations and descriptions in this book. It is a complete farce at best. There is no discussion of what management is doing that is leading quite a few of these "personality types" to be causing the extremes she describes.

There is a reason violence in the workplace has escalated in the past decade. Stress levels brought on by the garbage taught in business school on how to "manage" employees is a very large portion of it. Most college grads with an MBA come out brainwashed these days with the notion that you can just simply "control" people and treat them as numbers and that's OK. Stress is completely glossed over in this book and how to reduce and deal with it effectively, this is especially important since it seems to be the underlying cause of many if not all of the behaviors she mentions.

Maybe I'm ranting a little but I just finished reading it and I simply can't get over how moronic it is. Then too see such shining reviews here, I had to give my input. It would be wrong not to.

I'm waiting on the book that gives me information on the stress management and fellow employees cause and how to stop or deal with it realistically. Until then I view Lynne Faulkin McClure, as Ph DUMB!

Dr. McClure has written a brief, yet profoundly practical and helpful, book that covers violence prevention through intervention in a way that supervisors, managers, and others can use immediately. I have attended Dr. McClure's Risky Business seminar and can say that this book is a seminar in itself. It is readable and chock-full of practical examples and illustrations. She blends her knowledge of management and human behavior to provide those who work in the real world with information they can use. Several features are unique to Dr. McClure's approach. I particularly appreciate her information on how organizations can help to create a culture that does not unwittingly encourage violence. Her eight high-risk behaviors will help managers and others in early identification, and will give them guidance in addressing those exhibiting risky behaviors thereby countering our tendency to want to deny, ignore, rationalize, or avoid. Also, she advocates a team approach, which she details nicely. The information in this book has become the centerpiece of several organizations' workplace violence initiatives and management training programs that I am aware of, including my own. Combined with her video presentation, it will go a long way towards making your place of employment safer. I'm looking forward to what will be coming next from Dr. McClure!
