I co-wrote a book!

I'm excited to share the publication of Concepts of Managing: A Road Map for Avoiding Career Detours!

For me, this book has been a 15-year labor of love and I am so proud to see it in print. I am also incredibly proud of my father--the main author--who has spent over 25 years compiling his experiences and wisdom from working in management.

With sections including career navigation, leadership and management, motivation, relationships, and ethics, it offers accessible and practical guidance on the workplace illustrated with helpful real-world situations. I really feel it's of value to anyone in the workplace.

It's available now in hardback, paperback, and e-book from the links above. If you cannot buy a copy but would like to help, please share the news or make a purchase request at your local public library. Later, I'll post with an interview with the lead author, Ronald Harris.

Thank you for your support!
