Terry has excelled himself with this book of bite-sized 'lessons' for bosses. When I scan my bookshelf for those books that I regularly reach for as powerful and useful references for developing leaders ... well, Terry has them all covered. From Daniel Pink to Carol Dweck, Daniel Goleman, Robert Cialdini - to name but a few of the most recognisable names. What that means is if you've read the 'big book' and want to have a summary to refresh your thinking, you can now simply flick to the relevant chapter in Brain Based Boss and voila! If you've yet to read the big book, you've just saved yourself a whole lot of time, because I guarantee you'll get the heart of it from Brain Based Boss.
For bosses, you've got a handy reference book to help you unravel the mysteries of how to improve your engagement scores. Whether you want to figure out how to more effectively motivate people, provide an environment where people can work at their peak or what sort of balance you should have between control and autonomy, you'll find some great ideas in this book.
