The workplace is ever-changing and there is a need to change how teams are lead and how training is conducted. Tom Holmwood suggests a system where leaders inspire instead of expecting pliancy. This book is an informative and educational road-map to better leadership in today’s environment.
Tony Holmwood speaks from a place of expertise and his command of the subject matter is evident. He provides evidence and sound arguments to support his approaches to the use of behavior to improve the workplace. His method does not disprove the traditional productivity centered approaches. He simply says that there is more to employees than the bottom line. Motivation is about more than just getting everyone in line. This approach to management shows a concern for the employee and their stance on issues. It shows recognition that the employee is not an asset to the company but rather a partner in success, thus, their opinion is of grave importance. This is a new perspective for me, but I found myself agreeing with many of the points put fourth.
Best Behaviour is an exceptionally well researched book, containing the appropriate tools required to implement the guidelines in your own company. Best Behaviour provides an actionable road-map that is thorough yet flexible enough to fit your unique position. Tony Holmwood has done an excellent job of using simple language to convey his ideas of managing people and their skills. This book left me with an appreciation for the employee as an individual, and a new perspective on how to manage that individual rather than the employee.
This type of leadership can be transformational for companies, organizations and even small teams that want to move away from an authoritarian type of leadership. Tony Holmwood allows readers to explore this concept with fresh eyes, unencumbered by a transactional culture deeply embedded in our society.
If you’re ready for a new approach to leadership, Tony Holmwood presents a brilliant alternative that allows one to see the benefits regardless of their position on the organizational food chain. This is not the first time transformational leadership has been tried, however the layered but simple way in which the idea is expressed in this book brings it to a new level.
