"From reading this book and past experience of working with Mandy you learn there is never enough time to focus on what is strategic and important, unless you embed leading teams into how you work. Leaders reading this book will gain valuable insights into the small things that make a difference when leading teams to success."

"This book is really, and literally, something else. Not the usual management fad. Instead, here is a manual with troubleshooting instructions within. I love that suggested solutions are taken down to what behaviours to display to make the solution come to life. The exemplifications of problems are spot in, and you can immediately recognise and relate to them. My team and I have worked a lot with creating team accountability and efficiency, and with the help of this manual we can continue to work with in on our own. My team members will get a copy as soon as the book is out."
Håkan Nyberg, Chief Executive Officer, Nordnet Bank, Stockholm Sweden
"If you are looking for a "how to" guide to improve your team's performance then this book is the book for you. While many leadership and team building books are theoretical, Leading Teams provides sound principles and is filled with helpful hints and practical steps to enhance team dynamics and improve effectiveness. The advice and solutions in this book will work as effectively with a small team as with a large, globally distributed team."
Kristen Holden, business executive with 27 years in financial services, including insurance and banking, New York USA
"I bought in from the first paragraph; ten chapters of real and practical examples of how to lad a team with characters skilfully portraying the tensions faced by leaders every day. A leadership masterclass."
Lynn Hill, Deputy CEO, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Hertfordshire UK
