Managing Your Boss In A Week

Managing Up In Seven Simple Steps

By Sandi Mann

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

You are just seven steps away from becoming employee no.1
Managing Your Boss In A Week is a simple and straightforward guide to managing up, giving you everything you really need to know in just seven short chapters. From establishing common goals, mutually beneficial ways of working and a deep understanding of their psychological make-up, to using body language, emotion management and dealing with the boss from hell, you'll ensure that you are ideally placed to become their favourite employee. You'll also find exercises to help you put it all into action.

Managing your boss just got easier
Having a good working relationship with the person in charge is crucial to enjoying a positive and fulfilling work life. All of the problems created by difficult relationships can be avoided, in many cases, by simply learning the skills to successfully 'manage' your boss. Most of us think that it is the other way around - that the boss manages us - but the astute employee knows that it works both ways.

If you understand how your boss operates, the inner working of their brain and their personality, you are far better able to meet their needs as an employee. And an employee who meets the needs and expectations of their boss will be a popular employee indeed!

This book guides you through the process of managing your boss so as to ensure that you are ideally placed to become their favourite employee. Whether you choose to read it in a week or in a single sitting, this is your fastest route to success:

- Sunday: What kind of animal is the 'boss'?
- Monday: What type of boss do you have?
- Tuesday: Using the psychological contract to manage your boss
- Wednesday: How to impress your boss
- Thursday: Getting more from your boss
- Friday: Dealing with the boss from hell
- Saturday: Common problems with managing the boss

Jocelyn Davis
Authors:
Jocelyn Davis

Influence is getting things done without coercion. It's strength without force-mindfulness in action. Master influencers walk lightly, talk softly and have no need of a big stick, yet collective success hinges on their words and deeds.Anyone can be a quiet influencer. Featuring twelve specific practices, twelve typical pitfalls and dozens of powerful stories and examples, The Art of Quiet Influence is a roadmap for the journey. Author Jocelyn Davis weaves together the timeless wisdom of Eastern thinkers-from Confucius to the Buddha, from Rumi to Gandhi-with research and insights from modern-day experts, revealing what's wrong with the Western view of influence as short-term persuasion and showing instead how to create trust-based collaborations with lasting impact.

Geoff Colvin

What if everything you know about raw talent, hard work, and great performance is wrong?Very few people are truly great at what they do. But why aren't they? Why don't we manage businesses like Warren Buffett, play golf like Tiger Woods or play the violin like Itzhak Perlman?Greatness doesn't come from inborn talent but from 'deliberate practice'. This isn't the kind of hard work that your parents told you about, but more of it equals better performance. Talent is Overrated will change the way you think about your life and work - and will inspire you to achieve more in everything you do. Great performance isn't reserved for a preordained few.

A fascinating book, by two witty and meticulous sports writers Sunday TimesA jaunty journey through the past quarter of a century in English football The TimesMagnificent ... Witty, pacy, thorough, this is a book hard to put down Daily MailBrilliant IndependentHow did English football - once known for its stale pies, bad book-keeping and hooligans - become a commercial powerhouse and the world's premium popular entertainment?This was a business empire built in only twenty-five years on ambition, experimentation and gambler's luck. Lead by a motley cast of executives, Russian oligarchs, Arab Sheikhs, Asian Titans, American Tycoons, battle-hardened managers, ruthless agents and the Murdoch media - the Premier League has been carved up, rebranded and exported to phenomenal 185 countries. The United Nations only recognizes 193.But the extraordinary profit of bringing England's ageing industrial towns to a compulsive global attention has come at a cost. Today, as players are sold for hundreds of millions and clubs are valued in the billions, local fans are being priced out - and the clubs' local identities are fading. The Premier League has become the classic business fable for our globalised world.Drawing on dozens of exclusive and revelatory interviews from the Boardrooms - including Liverpool's John W. Henry, Tottenham's Daniel Levy, Martin Edwards and David Gill at Manchester United, Arsène Wenger and Stan Kroenke at Arsenal, Manchester City's sporting director Txiki Begiristain, and executives at Chelsea, West Ham, Leicester City and Aston Villa - this is the definitive bustand boom account of how the Premier League product took over the world.

Ambition Redefined

Kathryn Sollmann
Authors:
Kathryn Sollmann

It's time to acknowledge that not all working women are interested in climbing the corporate ladder or securing the corner office. Most want and need flexible, less life-consuming work to accommodate their real lives, and it's not weak, lacking ambition or letting down the sisterhood to pursue professional fulfillment and financial security through less lofty, or headline-making ways.Eye-opening and practical, Ambition Redefined is a welcome alternative to 'women's business books'. Sollmann calls it like it is: everyday women want and need flexible work that allows them to unapologetically pursue their own brand of ambition and success. She shows them how without sacrificing themselves, their careers or their families. Armed with practical insights and tools, readers will be empowered to go after opportunities beyond traditional definitions of work, career and success. They will learn why they should never leave the workforce, how to make a case for flexibility in a current full-time job, how to find flexible employers, industries and job functions and how to return to work after time away raising children or caring for elderly parents.
