Overview

Your happiness and your success depend on your working relationships
The people you manage. How well you work with your boss. The way collaboration happens with colleagues and peers. How you connect with important prospects and key clients.
But the hard truth is this: most of us leave the health and fate of these relationships to chance.
We say “Hi,” exchange pleasantries … and hope for the best.
But every relationship becomes suboptimal at some point, whether it’s a good one that goes off the rails or one that was poor from the start.
Mostly we are resigned to the fact that this is what happens: relationships always get a little broken, or a little stale, or a little worse. C’est la vie, c’est la guerre. Carry on.
But it doesn’t have to be like this.
Every working relationship can be better.
This book shows you how to build the best possible relationship.
One conversation. Five questions. Detailed guidance on how to prepare and set the relationship up for success. Key insights on how to maintain the relationship so that it will continue to thrive.

About the Author

George Orwell said, “An autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful.” In that vein, Michael was banned from his high school graduation for “the balloon incident”, was sued by one of his Law School lecturers for defamation, and managed to give himself a concussion while digging a hole as a labourer…

Luckily, there’s also been some upside. He is the author of a number of books, and the one he is best known for with 90,000 copies sold is Do More Great Work. However, the one he’s proudest of is End Malaria, a collection of articles about Great Work from thought leaders that’s raised about $400,000 for Malaria No More and reached #2 on Amazon.com.

Michael also organized the Great Work MBA, a virtual conference featuring 30 world class speakers and which had more than 10,000 registered participants.

All of this is done as founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work. Their focus is on helping time-crunched managers coach in 10 minutes or less, and their Fortune 500 clients include TD Bank, Kraft, Gartner and VMWare.

Michael is a well-regarded speaker, and as well as speaking to organizations he regularly keynotes at conferences such as HRPA, SHRM, CSTD, the Evanta HR Leadership series and The Conference Board of Canada. He’s known for sessions that are highly engaging, interactive and entertaining. And for his colourful Box of Crayons socks.

Before Box of Crayons, Michael spent time inventing products and services as part of an innovation agency, and working as a management consultant on large scale change, where amongst other things he wrote the global vision for GlaxoSmithKline.

Michael was a Rhodes Scholar and the first Canadian Coach of the Year.
