No matter what industry, sector or institution, the world of work can often seem bonkers.

Breaking Free of Bonkers shows you how it is possible to make progress despite the mad and messy world of today's organisations. Against the odds, it is possible to lead effectively.George Binney, Phil Glanfield and Gerhard Wilke are three organisation consultants from Ashridge Business School. They have an unusual vantage point. Drawing on their long experience of working with people at levels - from chief executives to front line workers - they offer hope. They use a wealth of lively examples and illustrations to show you how to get connected with colleagues, get real about what you offer and get going on the things that matter.
