The Story Behind the Book.
After years of suffering staff hazels that made being in business a living nightmare, I realise that things had to change or I would become part of the statistics of people having a heart attack than face Monday Morning with my staff. I enlisted organisational psychologist, human resource managers, went to seminars and events, read books and articles, but nothing was working for me the headache of having staff was relentless.
This headache all changed when I throw out all the rules and guides on how to be a great boss and changed my approach and became the Worst Boss Ever. I decided that it was all about my business and me and if staff didn’t like how I ruled then, they could be moved on as I was overturning myself into everything they wanted me to be so they were motivated productive and honest workers doing the job they were hired to do. The Result was taking a failing business to an award-winning successful company with a fantastic staff that I loved and no more headaches.
Best Audio Book – Review By David Stokes
“In this no nonsense, compact title full of awesome tips and great research, Debra Spence gives us the concise ‘good oil’ on building and maintaining business teams. And maintaining your health and sanity…
Just as in the following quote from ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ suggests: “…only at the precipice do we evolve….”
We also see the author faced with her own ‘cliff edge’ moment, leading to greater enlightenment and eventually the writing of this book.
Debra takes us through the justification for employing people resources complementary to your personality, discovering your leadership style – and those of your team – right through to understanding the dominant learning senses of yourself and others.
