About The Book:
“Confessions of a Reformed Control Freak – The Top Ten Sins Most Managers Make & How to Avoid Them” are woven into the ten chapters of this book. Each chapter is dedicated to one of those sins. And yes – I’ve committed each of them at one time or another. I was once the ultimate “Control Freak”! I was an “old school” micro-manager. So I know from my own experiences, having spent 40 years managing and leading others, what works and more importantly-what doesn’t work. I wrote this book so that first time supervisors, managers and business leaders could learn from my mistakes. Even seasoned professionals can learn a thing or two by reading this book.

“I have been reading your book and it is even better than I thought. It is not just a book for managers – it is a great book (great practical advice) to a person/employee. I was reading carefully the parts on how to increase/improve self-esteem and confidence. Wonderfully done – I love it.” – J.C. – CBSA

“I love the summaries at the end of each chapter. Also like how you write “Worth Remembering …” before you list a quote. I think that’s a nice touch. You have a good balance between your own personal voice (like you’re talking directly to me) and practical voice (sharing general knowledge).” – Tim Milburn

About The Book:
“Reflections of a Reformed Control Freak – Life Lessons I’ve Learned Along The Way”.
My first book “Confessions of a Reformed Control Freak – The Top Ten Sins Most Managers Make & How to Avoid Them.” was written to help managers and business leaders learn how to manage and lead others more effectively. Several readers suggested that the content would also benefit anyone needing to learn how to manage their time more effectively, cope with stress, and get along with just about anyone – even if you don’t like them. If you find yourself wanting more and are ready to make a change and live a more purposeful life, a life more for filling, then this book is for you. It’s filled with tips and techniques to help you make those kinds of changes.

“Your life is a planned event. Wishing and hoping won’t make it so. When you change the habit, you change the result, but nothing will change unless you do.” – Brian Smith

  1. Thanks for providing me with a digital copy of your book. It’s chocked full of great insights. As I mentioned to you in the email, “Love the summaries at the end of each chapter. Also like how you write “Worth Remembering…” before you list a quote. I think that’s a nice touch. I think you have a good balance between your own personal voice (like you’re talking directly to me) and practical voice (sharing general knowledge).”

    I’m learning a lot as I read through it!
