EZ Press Release  -- June 6, 2016 Poor leaders cause discord in the workplace and negatively impact a company’s bottomline and employee morale. Often, they see everyone else as “the problem” when they should be looking in their own mirror. How not to act like an asshole at work (Wise Ways Consulting/May 2016/$14.95 paperback) by Melissa Davies delivers a fictional story based on real life examples and lessons on how to create an environment where team members are able to show up with their best selves and contribute to meeting the organizational mission.

Unlike other leadership- and team-focused books on the market, How not to Act like an Asshole at Work is written in story form allowing readers to escape into a fictional environment, but one that will look and feel familiar. The story follows Louise, call me Lou, Jackson, a hyper-driven, task-focused manager who doesn’t understanding that an organization’s best asset is its people.  Through the candid help of her mentor, James Mason, Lou learns how essential her behavioral skills, are and how much she has to learn if she wants to develop her team.  It’s a difficult journey going inward, and not one that Lou takes willingly!
Who are “those” other people, the BLEEPS that we meet in life?  They include:

The Can’t Trust ‘Em as Far as You Can Throw ‘Em BLEEP
The It’s All About Me BLEEP
The I’m Taking my Toys and Leaving BLEEP
The My Way or the Highway BLEEP
The World is out to Get Me BLEEP
The That’s Not My Problem BLEEP
The How Can You be Doing This to Me BLEEP

“If you don’t have any empathy for others, keep on living.  Life will teach you some empathy!” 
Melissa Davies

Organizations are made up of many different personalities and characters.  Lou’s team is no different!  Representing the diversity within today’s workforce, they come from all walks of life.  They bring competing priorities and personal agendas.  They are of different faiths and ethnicities.  Yet at their core, they all want to do well and feel like they are a part of something greater than themselves.  Follow along with Lou and her team as she learns what it means to truly be an effective leader!
