Whether we're a state leader, CEO or the office tea maker, there is still a child in all of us, latent and ever-ready to emerge. This might be in the form of bad behaviour such as answering back, calling names, telling lies, showing off, being greedy etc or by simply feeling wounded, sulky, disempowered or the victim of an unfair situation. But remember back to what our elders taught us when we were tiny. Those childhood rules weren't just for sorting out play-box squabbles, they were actually the rules for life. Now it's high time that someone set about reminding us and making sure we abide by them again, and what's more The Office Auntie might be just the person for the job! We need a return to Nice and we need it now. A no-nonsense guide to creating more rewarding and sustainable business relationships.

This book combines all Jane’s hats as an entrepreneur, business trainer/coach, writer, lover of afternoon tea and importantly, an adoring Mum and Auntie. With an additional background in PR, NLP and public speaking, Jane has specialised in coaching others in rapport and communication skills. Apart from being a Guinness World Record Holder (see final chapter), she’s also a black belt in Kyokushinkai karate (known as Knockdown karate) - but that’s a different kind of communication!Her coaching clients have included business executives and teams and also struggling parents with ‘stroppy‘ youngsters. Jane says: “Sometimes there isn’t that much difference between the ‘toys out of the pram’ behaviour of the youngsters and the so-called grown ups in business suits! Young and old, we all need praise, acknowledgement, support and hugs... plus a few reminders on behaving nicely too!”Jane’s ‘Saint of a husband’, Roger, runs a wedding and event catering business. They have two stunningly creative and ‘challenging’ sons Edward and George, (one of whom got 26 detentions at school in just 7 days!), who are now grown and live in Toronto. In 2011, she also set up The English Cream Tea Company (www.englishcreamtea.com) which sends out chilled, indulgent gift hampers of delicious afternoon tea all over the UK, “because English Cream Tea embodies everything that’s nice in life! It’s all about spending quality time with people”.Review:
