UNLIKE A BOSS, by Alexander N. Andrews
The power of kindness can mitigate the ill effects of our increasingly online social world and indeed our experiences at the office. It is an essential leadership skill that can cascade through people, changing the culture of the workplace along the way. Kindness is not always seen as a priority in the workplace, especially as it can contrast with the traditional image of a successful entrepreneur. Haven't we been told that "nice people finish last?" Office culture can be cutthroat and competitive, leading to hurtful criticism, lack of collaboration, and miscommunication.
However, now we are increasingly talking about wellbeing in the workplace, and bringing an authentic quality to our work, being gentle with ourselves, and with others around us.
UNLIKE A BOSS looks at these issues from a perspective of experience. Author, Alexander N. Andrews has lived it and helps us understand this world and how to navigate through it. With practical advice and strategies, this book is a MUST read for all industries to effectively learn from our own and others mistakes, to preparing us for the future.
Andrews explains how our actions can advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, but organizations often lack data to know how well they’re working - here’s where they can do better!

When Possum got Coronavirus speaks about germ prevention, cleanliness, emotional management, and communication, and all at a level that is understood by children of all ages. It is a positive and realistic view at the world we live in and a historic record to own and look back on in years to come, about our current world climate and indeed, how we all helped each other through it.
We first learned about Possum and Dragon with Shellie Curran’s debut children’s book called, When Possum Met Dragon. We have all grown to love the characters, following their adventures together as the best of friends. When Possum got Coronavirus is the story of how Possum contracts the virus. We learn how the pair deal with managing the symptoms and we discover how their friendship grows as a result. This beautiful story is informative, heart-warming, and unforgettable. “In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic I felt it necessary to somehow try to transform the tragedy and scariness of it all, into something that children can understand and not be afraid of. Learning to live with Coronavirus is a new way of living for us all and managing our lives to suit the new rules and protocols accordingly. I hope that my book can help teach not only my own children about the importance of keeping clean and covering their coughs and sneezes, but perhaps a few others along the way too.” - Shellie Curran, Author

Greg is a man that has been swimming too long under water. Cheryl is the breath of fresh air he was looking for. When he comes up for air, he finds himself gasping.

Why is it only a few people “make it out”? For those few, why are they not eager to rescue the people who are experiencing the same level of despair which they had not too long ago?In this book, I go over five stories and five reasons why some people don’t give back to the communities from which they come. My goal is to spark a conversation about breaking the cycle of successful individuals leaving and never returning to the communities that need their guidance. In my opinion, the only way the most impoverished and crime-ridden neighborhoods in America will change is if the people who grew up and succeeded despite those conditions return with a roadmap.
