Sort your team at work

9 simple leadership hacks that will change your work life

Managing people when it's messy.


A global pandemic. Would you have ever thought that life would change so much in such a short period of time?

And, yet for lots of us, things have actually stayed the same.

On the one hand, you are being asked to manage business as usual.  And, on the other hand, you are constantly being asked to adapt.  Adapt to the rules.  Adapt your business. And, manage people with ever changing goalposts.

In times like this, a lack of personal and team accountability lets you off the hook.  You can blame someone else.  The Government.  The virus. Them.

And, yet, if you don't innovate and respond, you run the risk of going backwards.

Leading change, in difficult times, requires equal doses of responsibility and innovation. 

If you don't get the balance right, your team will either be highly disciplined and get lots of things done or in complete chaos and jump from one idea to the next.

Get more things done

If you are managing people, you probably already know how important communication is to your success.

Imagine if you could learn how to communicate in a way that everyone was clear about what had to be done.

And, imagine if you could communicate in a way that shared the responsibility for the task at hand.

And, just for a wild moment, consider what it could do, if you could get more things done.  Things that matter.

What your team really wants

Not knowing what your team wants from you is a real problem. 

As a leader, you need to get things done - but the only way to do this is to get your team on board.

You might carve out a clever and creative plan to solve the problems at work, only to find that your plan falls flat with no buy in from your team.

The trick is to make it all about them.  Not in a entitled and selfish way, but in a way that gets their needs met and YOURS.

But wait!  This book is not for you, if you are not ready to take real action in the workplace.

This book is NOT for you, if you just want to talk about your problems.

This book is not for you, if you do not manage a team or a group.

This book is not for you if you are happy with your team, their progress and your ability to lead them.

And, this book is DEFINITELY not for you if you want to avoid your problems at work and blame someone else.

This is THE book for busy Managers and Leaders


Heartfelt Leadership is a practical book that provides immediate solutions to common team, work and life problems. 

It is also a philosophical book that will ask you to think more deeply about life and authentic leadership.

Heartfelt Leadership was written for smart people, like you, who need to get things done.  Senior leaders who are good at their job, but want direct, no-nonsense advice and need a mix of strategic and practical support.

Heartfelt Leadership is different because it has been written from my lived experience as a business owner, consultant and leader.

Rich with stories that will resonate with you, the harassed and busy leader, Heartfelt Leadership will give you immediate and practical relief and space for reflection.
