    Less Stress Business: A Guide for Hiring, Coaching, and Leading Great Employees is a business management guide written by Jamie Sussel Turner, M.Ed. Turner was a school principal for many years before becoming a business coach, and her ideas and suggestions are based on her personal experiences as well as her study of human resources and personnel management. According to Turner, there are 7 practices that can lead to reduced stress for owners and managers in the workplace. She shows how to enhance a stress-less workplace through attention to hiring the right employees; getting past the honeymoon period and learning who those employees really are; and learning how to interact with them in a mutually positive and affirming way. Turner gives examples of positive and negative responses and cues, and shows how emotional and dysfunctional situations can be resolved in such a way that the work dynamic is actually strengthened as a result.

    I wish I had had Jamie Sussel Turner's Less Stress Business: A Guide for Hiring, Coaching, and Leading Great Employees when I was promoted to a position supervising my former workmates. As I read through each of her practices, I relived some of the situations and problems that occurred and saw how I could have turned most of those tense moments into positive experiences for everyone. The questions she suggests for hiring new employees are also inspired and, again, I wish I had had those to help me through the interviewing process. This book should be required reading for new managers or small business owners. When I was promoted, the departing manager gave me a set of worry dolls to put under my pillow at night. She said they'd help me deal with the stress. I wish she had given me this book instead! Less Stress Business: A Guide for Hiring, Coaching, and Leading Great Employees is also a treat to read. It's beautifully organized, and the author quickly establishes a working and coaching relationship with the reader. Less Stress Business: A Guide for Hiring, Coaching, and Leading Great Employees is highly recommended.
