All too often we are subjected to people leadership which lacks inspiration, let alone care. In workplaces all over the world there are 'bosses' - managers who just don't get people. They micromanage, set unrealistic targets, and maybe even create workplace cultures based on fear. Should these people really be allowed to lead others? During his leadership career spanning 30 years to date, Alexander has often found himself swimming against the tide of poor managers and in doing so, overcame his own feelings of deflation, channelling this into creating engaging workplaces for his teams that were the envy of his colleagues. Much to his surprise, he even won awards for it! ‘UNLIKE A BOSS’ spills the beans on some of the poorest people leadership examples he’s observed, and been subjected to, in a conversational, and at times light-hearted, pseudo memoir style.

The kind of tips you wish your manager had read. It’s a must read for anyone who leads people and who wants to create an environment where every day is a great day! “Make sure you go and check out Andrews’ book, UNLIKE A BOSS is about leadership skills in your workplace.
