MEDIA REVIEWS
I was thrilled when Catherine asked me to read her book. I expected it to be insightful, full of her words of wisdom and presented in an easy-toread format. I wasn't disappointed. This will sit in my bookcase alongside the greats as a tool for reference when I'm working through an approach or when I'm designing leader-manager learning interventions. It's full of useful exercises, rich in short, thought-provoking statements, truly helpful relatable case stories and years of experience in many different sectors of work. Well done Catherine. This is a great read. I really enjoyed it. If you are new as a leader-manager read and learn. If you are an experience leader-manager read on, there are new things to learn and some things to refresh thinking on. This spans the years of leader-manager practice. -- Wendy Hughes, Head of Learning and Development, BAM Nuttall Ltd
Read it! This is one of the most engaging, real-world management books I've read in a long time. It was like getting a shot of Catherine. You were here with me, being highly engaging, fun, businesslike and motivational. -- James Roseblade, General Manager, Jemca Lexus
Catherine is an inspirational exec coach and brilliant facilitator at getting `You' to get the best out of `You'. Through her teachings, guidance and support I continue to grow each day as an effective Leader. `Being an Agile Leader-Manager - practical skills to handle people challenges, in today's world of work' is an essential part of the current or aspiring leader-manager's toolbox; I'd challenge anyone using the book not to identify, learn and improve with it. -- John Slaven, Engineering Manager, Bam Nuttall
Catherine's book is excellent. It really explains the key things that a leader-manager needs to handle effectively in today's complex organisational environment to deliver success. It's an excellent `go to' resource for any manager who wants to be successful at managing people. This book gets to the real essence and issues that confront leader-managers in the complex world of business today, providing a valuable guide to the challenges they face. -- Andrew Exon, Group Operations Director, John Roe Toyota Group
I've read some `Management' books before and they have been a trudge with no real learning at the end other than a whole load of terms I'll never use. This book has substance and meaning. The stories and exercises and `?' sections allow/invite the reader to `do' something rather than being passive. -- Chris Smith, Director of Training
How very grateful would I have been earlier in my career if a manager or mentor had handed me your book. It is brilliantly segmented and specific in areas of focus. It works on every level and it would inspire any manager/leader in my industry to action. I actively recommend it to current and aspiring managers - and to organisations who wish to turn their technical talent into the leaders of the future. -- Keith J Barnard MIMI, I.Eng, MSOE, MIRTE, TPS, Manager at VW Group
