If you’re a typical mid-career worker in a typical enterprise – been around a while, employs more than a handful of people – the chances are you are being squeezed. Hard. You’re under pressure like never before, coming at you from all directions. It’s getting worse, and the prospects are worse still. You’ve been asked to do more with less for years, and there is nothing left to give. You can’t trust people, you feel insecure, and the job seems a bit pointless. You’ve given up trying to fix the crappy processes you have to work with, because it’s easier to disengage.  

Meanwhile the outside world appears to have gone mad, the millennials are coming up fast behind at half your salary and you ought to be worrying about when a robot is going to take your job. Work-Life balance is an outdated concept, and you no longer know how to switch off. You find it hard to keep up technically, and worry about how relevant you are. You may well want out, but can’t work out how to do it, and so you’re stuck.

Your career mojo - the engine which keeps you motoring at work - needs servicing, or worse still, it's broken down.

The great news is that there is a way through this. The engine can be repaired. You CAN find meaning and fulfilment in the work you do. 

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.

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.
