Management Educational Books

Just £9.99

Hi thanks for your interest in my management books page, you’ve either sat and completed one of my 12-month leadership masterclasses (and got it for free) or found it online and thought it could help you resolve an issue you have managing your team. And well done for opening it, Keep Educating Yourself is KEY to running a successful business and moving it forwards.

So why write the book in the first place? I wrote it for a couple of reasons:

  • Firstly, it’s a compilation of the notes and discussions with many teams from all different industries I have made and had during the 12-month action focused leadership and management program and it complements the Reflective Leadership Logbook that I have written, which all learners receive at the beginning of the program.
  • Secondly, because I’ve read hundreds of books over the years. Some are really helpful, some are hugely motivational, but not many have given me the tools to go and resolve an issue tomorrow. They promote creative thinking which is great if you have the time, but actually “I have a team member who's pissing me off now and bringing the team down, what can I do”?  Well you could read my HR skills for managers book where you will find the answers, the actions in there will help you – almost instantaneously.

That’s the type of management educational books I wanted to write, a book that answers issues and arms managers with practical tools to manage and lead their teams, build their business and generate profit. There are obviously no guarantees, you have to actually go and do some work, I can’t do it for you. However, if you do need a consultant to visit your business to help with problem solving, business building, team building or vision and mission implementation then please feel free to contact me (I work all over Europe), and if it’s something I can’t help with I bet I know someone I can put you in touch with.

So why me? What do I know? What’s my background?

I would describe myself as a business and team development specialist (I love concentrating on the team’s performance to generate profit and rewards). I’m not an expert – I was once told an Ex is a has been and a spirt is a drip under pressure! I don’t profess to know everything (my wife and kids might disagree)??! I specialise in Management and Leadership development, Team and Business development, Marketing, Coaching and delegation, change management and HR. My training delivery and consultancy style is direct and supportive, and I speak from bloody nose experience rather than ivory tower philosophy.

I have had successes and failures, I’ve rushed in where only fools dare and sometimes it’s worked and sometimes it’s blew up in my face. Saying this though, I am hugely positive and have a great outlook on life, I’m a goal setter and a goal achiever – I don’t have a “bucket-list”, I have a “book-it” list and there is a huge difference.

I direct three companies. The first is a property management company, the second is my publications company which specialises in management educational books and the third is my training company. I have published five other books, two of which are hiking guides rather than just business management and marketing literature – so time management is not just a buzzword, it’s a way of life

When people ask me about how I manage my time so effectively I advise them not to try to manage their time, I advise them to try and manage their energy levels - that's the secret - I discuss it in another one of my management educational books "Managing Time"




A little of my history:

After returning from working a summer season in the states (just north of San Francisco) I started my management career within leisure centres and sports clubs, as a trainee, in and around Nottingham (UK). After a couple of years, I left for the shiny lights of South-East London and joined a management program within the hospitality industry. My goal was to be running my own outlet within 12 months which everyone laughed at. After 11 months I was successful in my application for my first management position in High Wycombe – so in your face doubters. 

The business was a massive success, one of the most profitable in the company.

My boss saw the potential in me and asked me to apply for a business in Birmingham, on broad street, which is the place for a night out in the West Midlands (I even met President Clinton on a walk about in Brindley place). The business started trading at just under a £million per annum and we doubled it within three years. During this time, I trained other managers in 25 outlets to do the same and we had the most profitable area in the country, with the lowest staff turnover. The knowledge and experience I have built up over the years - really does work.

Moving on a few years, I bought a hugely underperforming pub/restaurant in the Peak District. I built the trade from £26,000 per year to £1.3 million in the eight years I had it. I know, I had to re-read those figures again just to make sure. It’s the reason we took it on, you literally taught the staff to smile and it doubled the weekly takings (I do have more top management tips other than smiling).

At the same time and after moving on from the pub/restaurant I have delivered training courses and consulted on business and team development for all sorts of companies which include:

Chatsworth house, Wetherspoons, Stanley Black and Decker, Wembley stadium security managers, Rullion, Slater Gordon, Qoda, Exclusive Networks, Paperstone, Hambleton steel, Team 4 Travel (Austria), Mahle Powertrain, Potter Clarkson, Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education, Leeds Trinity University, Birmingham museum and loads more.

As you can see from the list above, there are a range of companies, and do you know what they all say (well nearly all) – ahhh but Adrian, our industry is different, it won’t work! - ...and of course it does, EVERY TIME.
