There is a lot of practical advice, with good examples, and potential solutions, with the idea that it is offering you some ‘how-to’ approaches. Overall it does seem to reflect a symptomatic challenge for the working world about how to get the most out of employees while also having the emotional intelligence to identify when you are in a less than optimal situation.

It’s a short book, less than 200 pages long so it’s a quick read so ideally you can get in and get the benefit quickly. We just hope that the source of the blockage / problems is also someone who is willing to read a book like this, and be able to take on the feedback and act accordingly on it.
