Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For anyone thinking of taking that first step into management or already in a management role but feeling a little lost and lonely this book is a must. Rus has a lively and engaging writing style and walks you through how to be a better manager over the course of seven days. The book is divided into days with each section covering a different component of effective leadership and management. Each section in a few pages covers what other leadership books take much longer to explain. With top tips, things to consider, bear traps and pitfalls Rus explains techniques that will have a real impact and set you apart from other managers or leaders. At the end of each section is a Q & A section which is well worth doing! All in all I highly recommend this book."—Louise Frayne, Head of HR & Organisational Development, Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
