I felt like I'd found religion!
on 9 September 2013
This book just makes so much sense that the morning after I read it I went in and talked to the CEO of our company about how quickly we could make our workplace a Happy workplace.
Everyone knows when they have a good manager - someone who trusts them, encourages them to play to their strengths and develop, and gives them flexibility and responsibility. Everyone knows when they have a bad manager too - someone who micro-manages, needs to approve every word change in every document, and who believes that there is only one right way to do something. Yet somehow when people become managers themselves they can find it difficult to let go of control, and to become the good managers they need to be in order for their business to thrive.
This is the first book I've read that really helps managers to let go of the fear and to create a Happy workplace, and demonstrates through experience that Happy workplaces are highly effective and productive workplaces. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
