Michael Nicholas

Are you wondering how to increase your impact in business? Or perhaps you want to know how to foster more cooperation and creativity in your team? These questions, and many like them, have the same answer – effective leadership.

Michael Nicholas explodes the myth that such goals are best achieved by working harder or changing behaviours. Instead, this book centres on the benefit – in fact the necessity – of focusing on the root cause of our results, the mind. Challenging at times, this book leads you on an exploration of the core principles for effective leadership that includes:

  • Demonstrating that taking full responsibility for leading yourself is a prerequisite to inspiring others
  • Explaining why we resist change and how this can be overcome to fulfil more of our potential
  • Equipping you to transform your relationships
  • Describing the vital principles for creating collaborative teams and generating win-win solutions
  • Showing you how to create leaders around you – possibly the best measure of your leadership

Understanding the process of personal change and then mastering it is critical to improve corporate, team or individual performance. For people eager to transform their influence and effectiveness as a leader and to help others to do the same, Being the Effective Leader is a superb handbook that offers simple yet profound lessons that can be applied every day. Your dealings with others may never be the same again.

Ian Munro

Forbury People have a solution which will provide some really practical help to job seekers without incurring massive costs to the employer.

Employers are always concerned when they have to make jobs redundant and the effect this will have on the involved staff. Many larger organisations will retain an outplacement or career transition company to run either individual or group programmes to help people get back into employment.

However for smaller and medium sized companies the cost of these programmes can be prohibitive and staff are often left to fend for themselves. Given the current economic environment this means that these people now out of work will have an even tougher time finding a new job.

In conjunction with ourselves, Ian has written an e-book called “100 + Top Tips for Job Seekers”. This e-book is filled with top tips about all the key areas of successful job searching.
