About the Author
In a one-on-one meeting with this executive director, he made the statement that another employee, who held the same title as B.L. Brown, was better than she was. In response, B.L. Brown informed him that this employee was not better than her nor was she better than the employee. From that one statement, she instantly realized her true purpose in life. "Best negative words spoken into my life thus far". (Excerpt~ B.L. Brown). Reckoning her experience with a newfound belief, the foundation of Halo-Orangees emerged.
In 2012 Author B.L. Brown launched Halo-Orangees/h-connect brand, international online dating website h-connect.net. The h-connect.net brand is empowering, motivating singles to find their best friend in love.

This book does cover both sides of the equation: employer and employee. It is not one-sided which is good and honest when it comes the reality of the workplace. I think the book could have been developed even further with many of the topics.
Some of the examples were hard to follow as they were too long. These should have been simplified or turned into case studies which might have been better and would have opened the door to expand some areas. Having examples are good and help the reader understand real life experiences in those situations.
If all these issues were addressed, I think companies would find that they were much better internally and externally. But that would be nigh impossible, sadly. The book is an example of a workplace utopia that will never be achieved as long as their are investors involved. The author calls this a handbook. I think that description would fit better if there was a slight change in the overall format: bullet points, summaries, and even worksheets that the readers could take away.
This is a good resource to have that employers and employees should read. I just don't think they want to change. This is a book you should read. Anyone would find something in there to improve upon and do their part in the big scheme of things.
Note: This book was provided as part of a book tour with no expectation of a positive review.
The basic messages are, for employers, that there are numerous occurrences of dysfunctional personal relationships often caused by poor managerial practice and which can be remedied by following the procedures to be outlined in the forthcoming handbook and, on the other hand, that employees should be able to stand up for themselves and to resist any form of containment or confinement by others in the workplace. For example, on p.XIV, as part of a longer paragraph along the same lines, author B.L. Brown writes: "Don't ever allow anyone to attack your self-esteem, kill your passion, or tell you that someone else is more worthy than you. Don't ever allow anyone to disrespect you or make you feel ashamed of your rate of pay. Don't ever allow anyone to isolate you into workforce confinement or knock you down and claim defeat over you." There are many people who are motivated or inspired by this kind of language and, for them, this might prove to be a helpful piece of self-help or self-empowerment.
Overall, the text is well-organized, streamlined and easy to follow. Those who enjoy the messages contained are likely to find the text inspirational, informative and compelling.Read more ›
