Do you dread going into work some days?

Are you struggling to get your team to work well together?

Have you ever considered that you might be the problem?

No leader, middle or frontline manager leaves for work in the morning with the aim of upsetting their team members or colleagues, and deliberately set on derailing projects. Yet it happens – and it happens a lot.

While the existing systems in your organisation and lack of resources can create a toxic environment that your team can’t perform its best in, often you can’t change this.

But there is one thing that you can always alter to improve your workplace, make your work more enjoyable and your team more effective – your attitude and behaviour.

The stories and strategies contained within will inspire you to work with what you’ve got and change whatever is holding you back.

In this far-from-usual-boring-business- book, you’ll learn how to:

  • identify if you’re an energy vampire that’s zapping your team’s productivity
  • climb the credibility ladder to become a manager your team and your talent wants to work with
  • navigate the Comfort Zone and Learning Zone–and what to do if you end up in the Twilight Zone
  • find “bumblebee moments” to get through difficult situations and meetings
  • assess you and your team’s performance using easy equations and checklists
  • gain trust, respect and value for the work you do with the people you work with.

You may not be able to change a crappy organisational system, but you can always change how you: “Show up, play nicely, and get the job done”.
