Confessions of a Reformed Control Freak – Actionable Books
A big shout out to Andy Budgell of Actionable Books for his review of my management development book – “Confessions of a Reformed Control Freak – The Top Ten Sins Most Managers Make & How to Avoid Them”. I wrote this book so first time managers, team leaders and supervisors could learn from my sins. And trust me – in my 40+ year career as a general manager for one of Canada’s most successful and respected companies and an award-winning entrepreneur – I’ve committed each of one of these sins at one time or another. I know from experience what works – and more importantly – what doesn’t work when it comes to communicating and interacting effectively with others. I’ve posted the review here for you to read. Let me know what you think. Better yet – Contact me directly to purchase an autographed copy for yourself or someone you know.
