Leadership Lessons From Downton Abbey – AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 1, 2017
Downton Abbey is an iconic British television series that captivated the world with its portrayal of the transition of family, society and institutional life during the years immediately before and after WWI.

In this book, the authors explore key leadership principles that may have been overlooked by modern management theory. Whether you are a Downton Abbey fan or not, this insightful book provides practical advice to increase your effectiveness as a leader and manager.

    From Away – Immigration to Effective Workplace Integration explores the ways Eastern and Western business mindsets affect workplace hiring, promoting and communication. Many new immigrants and the managers who hire them believe that technical skills can be universally recognized and these skills determine the success of a professional. Extremely competent, educated immigrants often do not get hired because of cultural differences in the hiring process. If they do get hired, often they do not get promoted because of communication differences that are culturally based. This book will help you as a manager decode those cultural differences so that you can hire the best, keep the best and maximize the talent of the best.
