You may have heard of the term ‘goodwill’ when valuing businesses. When considering teams, it can be seen as the intangible factor that means people may go the extra mile when help is needed, to endure some discomfort or inconvenience for a while. Goodwill is a vital ingredient that makes people say “Yes, ok” when you ask them for help at 5pm and they want to go home, or you need to ask them to travel to a distant city at short notice for a client meeting, or compromises need to be made because the sales pipeline has collapsed, or you can’t keep your promises.

We think this book is worth a read, especially if you manage people at some level. 

It s particularly focussed on 'toxic employees' and how they might be treated and dealt with.  It's a little cheesy at times for my liking but I did finish it (quite quickly), and I've recommended it to several people who have 'staff issues'. 

It might not fix all of your problems, but it might give you some ideas.

At some point, the annual ‘employee engagement questionnaire’ is emailed around by an HR manager.  Members of staff are instructed to rate their experience for a number of key aspects. Responses are analysed.  A summary is later sent to senior management, and perhaps the rest of the employees.  For the employee, its forgotten for 12 months, apart from perhaps a brief email about results.  Everyone feels very jolly, miserable or indifferent.

People are often recruited or promoted into management roles with little or no training and support. The skills of 'doing the job' are one aspect of success (or even just making life a little bit easier for now). Looking and being the part can be as important though.

This course includes elements of project management, time management, team and people management, and other hints and tips. You gain knowledge and skills that you can implement immediately.

This is great for people who are new into a 'management' role, or for those who are being loaded up with more and more 'management' tasks.


Some testimonials:

"A great session with helpful guidelines, processes and tips! Delivered in a personal and relaxed way that enables you to engage and contribute."

"Really useful session, and useful to discuss other peoples' experiences."

"With a clear and focused approach this course has helped me to revisit some past management experience, while introducing new strategies, ideas and methods for more successful management practices."


The content is for managers in any sector or business, of any age, at any point in the organisation's career ladder. The benefit that transcends all of this is improving your core skills and knowledge. This benefit can be taken and applied immediately, regardless of the manager's actual specialisation.
