What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book, Your Team Loves Mondays…Right? was inspired by the number of people I was coaching that were trying to escape their boss. I had written YouMap to help people find a job they’ll love, but if that job was vacant from someone escaping their manager, I wanted to help all managers earn their team’s respect and get better results.
