Aesop's Management Fables uses animal stories linked with fictional case studies to illustrate common management problems and suggest sensible solutions. The book will help you link everyday behaviours in the work environment with endearing (and not so endearing) animal characteristics. This has the double benefit of making these behaviours more understandable and, consequently, far less threatening.
Beware! You may suddenly recognize your manager as a lovable Wombat. How, then, can you continue to find their behaviour irritating and frustrating? As a manager, perhaps you will recognize your own Kookaburra tendencies. Won't it then seem easier to get off the roller-coaster and direct your energies more constructively?
Aesop's Management Fables contains seventeen individual and team stories covering a wide range of common work situations - you will never see yourself or your colleagues in the same way again!
