Format: Paperback
There are several topics in this book that really hit home, as I have been in the workplace for a long time. Although we "inherit" our management, we can rise above any situation b stepping up our own leadership capabilities, without needing to be the boss! Your writing style invokes tha sense of humor needed in situations with the type of management that lacks in successful management of the organization's people and I pretty much smiled throughout the process of reading your book. I would encourage everyone who has doubts about staying in a work situation with the lack of quality management to read this book, simply because you raise the awareness to realize that we can't change people - we can only lead (no matter what our jobs are) by example and hope it rubs off. and I would hope that this book draws attention for those that are in those very important roles of managing people. People are the Number One and most precious resource of any organization and should never be treated with less importance. Thank you for writing this book

So glad to see someone operationalize what poor management looks like. So many people I coach do not understand the impact of their behavior. Barbara Otis surely makes the case. Glad to see this contribution to our field by someone in the know.

Amazingly simple if you're prepared to look in the mirror at yourself and how you go about managing and leading people..........The authors ability to capture so succinctly the activities that really terrible managers employ sometimes consciously but most times unconsciously to simply destroy morale in individuals and an organisation. Simply constructed offering both the symptom and the antidote to equip managers with the necessary ways to keep their most important assets purposefully engaged..................I loved it!!!!

What a pleasant surprise and a great read this book is. The nuggets of wisdom that this book contains is priceless. Barbara Otis has captured in this publication the concepts and the insights that all managers and leaders should remember to incorporate into their organization. She has done so in a humorous, but matter of fact, fashion. I couldn't wait to receive it and when I did, I couldn't put it down. Awesome job Barbara! Your knowledge and awareness of what any management team should pay attention to is well-stated!

A friend got me this book after many a late-night chats about management frustrations! This book was a great, humorous read. I have contemplated flagging pages and leaving it on my managers desk! This is a must-read for everyone.

It was a great book. I'm not a manager but I got an idea how to talk to mine better. I just wish more managers would read it. It's an easy book to read.

This is not a book to read - but rather to reference . . . often!
101 reminders of how important it is to be respectful and considerate of those we work with. I'm a teacher, not a manager, but appreciate these "gentle nudges."
Barbara Otis does a great job of educating us in an entertaining way, without leaving you feeling like you've been scolded.
I hope this is the first of a series, because there's much more to say about workplace relationships.
