About the author (1997)

Tom Reeves evolved as a management developer through a varied and practical career - first as a merchant navy officer (he is a master mariner), a sociological researcher, employee relations consultant, research manager, and eventually manager of a large academic department and Professor of Management Development, a post he held at Middlesex University, London. Not a 'born' manager himself, but through experience and processes of personal development, he gained the understanding to guide other managers in their development. Alchemy for Managers distils this understanding. Workshops that he runs based on this book help managers manage to their full effectiveness, using their personal qualities to best advantage.
