Corporate Punishment - Smashing the management cliches for leaders in a new world
Think there's no 'I' in 'team'? There is. Believe that together everyone achieves more? They don't. Asked to give it 110 per cent? You can't. Think employees are your greatest asset? They ain't. Got an open-door policy? For goodness sake - shut it!
Whether you're a perpetrator or a casualty of cringe-worthy corporate cliches (or both), Corporate Punishment will challenge the way you think about the world of business and the mind-numbing management mottos that have underpinned it for decades. From teams and leadership to workplace culture and customer service, James Adonis smashes in this book some of the most deeply entrenched business philosophies.

The Truth about Trust in Business
People don't deal with others they don't trust. If you want your employees to be engaged, they need to trust you, their manager, and the products and services you offer to your customers. If you want your relationships to stay strong, you need to be able to trust each other.
The Truth about Trust in Business builds on a clever model with simplicity and clarity, and connects us to the reality of trust and its critical role in business. Real-life examples and conversational language make this book an easy and enjoyable read. Authored by Vanessa Hall, The Truth about Trust in Business includes a chapter on "trust in people management" which was written by James Adonis.
