I work for a boss who demonstrates total Parent-child, Tell-do behaviour and our business is suffocating under the weight of monkeys on our backs! It was very refreshing to get a different and practical perspective on my boss's behaviour and how, after a long battle against his aggressive and negative attitude, I now have a real framework on which to tackle some of his behaviour. The book also helped me realise that his Parent style of management has often led me to behave in a child like manner (avoid speaking to him, getting angry with him, sulk etc) and I now realise that this doesn't help me manage my direct reports any better and some of his negativity seeps through into my team. To prevent this happening, I need to respond in an adult way when he begins his parent style of management and not get dragged into taking on the childlike positioning his behaviour is encouraging.
The whole issue of "Monkeys on your back" is also a fascinating and practical metaphor that I have already been using to assess my own management style and those of my direct reports. We are already making changes as a result!
So thanks for writing such a practical book Lee - I can now see how I can remove my monkeys and create some lemons amongst my team!
