About the Author:

Catherine is a highly experienced, qualified consultant, facilitator and executive coach with over 20 years' experience in corporate life. She specialises in helping develop leaders and managers in such a way that they can significantly increase their confidence, competence and impact in the organisations that employ them. She has extensive experience with intact and virtual teams, coaching directors and senior managers in a range of industries. Working with blue chip companies in the areas of leadership, change and management development, she especially enjoys working with individuals, teams and large groups who are in the process of business change and those who want to grow and develop their leader-managers.

Review:

I was thrilled when Catherine asked me to read her book. I expected it to be insightful, full of her words of wisdom and presented in an easy-toread format. I wasn't disappointed. This will sit in my bookcase alongside the greats as a tool for reference when I'm working through an approach or when I'm designing leader-manager learning interventions. It's full of useful exercises, rich in short, thought-provoking statements, truly helpful relatable case stories and years of experience in many different sectors of work. Well done Catherine. This is a great read. I really enjoyed it. If you are new as a leader-manager read and learn. If you are an experience leader-manager read on, there are new things to learn and some things to refresh thinking on. This spans the years of leader-manager practice.--Wendy Hughes, Head of Learning and Development, BAM Nuttall Ltd

Read it! This is one of the most engaging, real-world management books I've read in a long time. It was like getting a shot of Catherine. You were here with me, being highly engaging, fun, businesslike and motivational.--James Roseblade, General Manager, Jemca Lexus

Catherine is an inspirational exec coach and brilliant facilitator at getting 'You' to get the best out of 'You'. Through her teachings, guidance and support I continue to grow each day as an effective Leader. 'Being an Agile Leader-Manager - practical skills to handle people challenges, in today's world of work' is an essential part of the current or aspiring leader-manager's toolbox; I'd challenge anyone using the book not to identify, learn and improve with it.--John Slaven, Engineering Manager, Bam Nuttall

Catherine's book is excellent. It really explains the key things that a leader-manager needs to handle effectively in today's complex organisational environment to deliver success. It's an excellent 'go to' resource for any manager who wants to be successful at managing people. This book gets to the real essence and issues that confront leader-managers in the complex world of business today, providing a valuable guide to the challenges they face.--Andrew Exon, Group Operations Director, John Roe Toyota Group

How very grateful would I have been earlier in my career if a manager or mentor had handed me your book. It is brilliantly segmented and specific in areas of focus. It works on every level and it would inspire any manager/leader in my industry to action. I actively recommend it to current and aspiring managers - and to organisations who wish to turn their technical talent into the leaders of the future.--Keith J Barnard MIMI, I.Eng, MSOE, MIRTE, TPS, Manager at VW Group

I've read some 'Management' books before and they have been a trudge with no real learning at the end other than a whole load of terms I'll never use. This book has substance and meaning. The stories and exercises and '?' sections allow/invite the reader to 'do' something rather than being passive.--Chris Smith, Director of Training
