In this book, Michael Brown reveals the 10 techniques he has used to help thousands of mid-career workers boost their career mojo. Discover the simple changes you can make to transform your work life. Using real-life stories and examples, he explains in concise and pragmatic terms how to make every day a good day at the office.
Michael Brown runs his own training consultancy, specializing in building leadership, team development and negotiation skills. He has been working with complex international organizations for nearly 20 years, and over that time he has met nearly 10,000 people in organisations of all shapes and sizes. This has given him an in-depth personal insight into their hopes, fears and challenges as they try to keep ahead in a rapidly evolving and increasingly dysfunctional workplace. Before joining the training industry he gained practical experience of managing people and developing small businesses from a 14-year career at Whitbread in logistics, sales and marketing. He was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford, where he was an organ scholar.
"Michael really knows what he's talking about. This rings so true. Love the writing style - it's funny and wise and I read the whole thing in one go. Highly recommended."
"Great book! Definitely recommend it."
"Years of acquired insights distilled in highly readable self help book. Want to take control of your career? This book is for you. Highly recommended."
"I opened this book late the night I received delivery and didn't close until after midnight... and got up at 5:15 to finish it. I have read it cover to cover and it has a strange effect when it connects the reader to the tales and characters interwoven into the text. I lost count of the 'OMG' moments, I laughed out loud at the mince pies and sobbed in the epilogue. I have bought extra copies for my Manager and Director as I leave their service in a few days time and Michael's book describes more eloquently than I could ever say why I have to go. Read it, read it twice, highlight the text and scribble in the margins until it is dog-eared and beaten - but most of all enjoy."
"....I loved his personal anecdotes and often found myself smiling, thinking "yes, I've been there". It's easy to read, written in plain English and refreshingly free of business jargon and acronyms. Highly recommended..."
"...Mike offers a ten point plan and real advice to as he puts it, 'get your career mojo back'. Career progression is too often seen as a steady escalator, but for most people it is not. That is why this book is so important"
"A well written and easy to read book full of examples of where organisations can go wrong and employees forget why they are there. What we can do to get our mojo back in our jobs, Thanks Michael. Its one of those books you put down in an office and it gets picked up in seconds, which then starts some interesting conversations."
"...Michael’s wisdom and experience as a trainer to over 10,000 people, together with his self deprecation, humour and anecdotes makes this book a fabulous read... "
"I read this book within a couple of days, and found myself in violent agreement with much of the content. The book is like having a personal coach in your pocket, and now that I have read it through I know that I will be revisiting parts of it again and again. I was so taken by the book that I have actually arranged to have a coaching session with Michael to explore my personal profile in more detail, as he has really made me think about a career change."
"This is good solid practical advice from someone who's been there and done it. 10 clear steps and lots of amusing anecdotes. Mike doesn't pull punches, and he says it like it is (or should be!). Top quality advice: a book to dip into on regular basis (like tuning a car!)."
"A highly practical book, full of useful tips and wisdom. Written in an honest, engaging, and witty style. Michael demonstrates knowledge and experience in very human terms. Unlike many "management/ leadership books it is not a heavy read.....even though it raises some very deep questions. Buy it, read it, you will not regret it"
"It can be tough working in the 'squeezed middle' of a modern organization. We experience, faster pace of change and increasing demands to deliver. At the same time, it can be hard to get things done in in a day filled with unnecessary meetings, irrelevant communication and unclear processes. No wonder some people lose what Michael calls their 'career mojo'.
