Description: A book explaining successful business management methods.
Synopsis: Pack Up Your Troubles is based on a lifetime of experience in turning around businesses, changing behaviours and achieving better results through people. The nature of work is progressively being dehumanised by technology, increased size, financial constraints and resource deficits. At the same time, a new generation of employees has a bewildering combination of education and skill, expectation and a sense of entitlement. If they don't like what we offer, they vote with their feet. Absence is still a major problem for most countries in the free world. Retaining skilled people is a constant challenge as contemporary influences encourage them to move around.How do we 'engage' people? Where are we supposed to start? Talking about 'teamwork' sounds fine, but how do you get people to turn up, both metaphorically and physically?Pack up Your Troubles explains what busy leaders can do to tackle such challenges. It's jargon free, practical, and based on the experience of thousands of fellow 'sufferers', who have been similarly confronted and won through. 'What's the use of worrying', when you can use such a 'kitbag' of practical tools?It won't solve every problem but it will help address the challenge of human beings at work.being...well, human, actually!
