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
