Hot Kitchens & Hard Places


I'm Malcolm Hornby, an author/trainer and I'm working on two new complementary books for FT/Prentice Hall. Working titles are: Book 1 "Stand the heat and stay in the kitchen" - how to survive and thrive in your first management/leadership job. Leadership skills, team meetings, recruitment etc. Book 2 "Life between a rock and a hard place" - the dilemmas of management and how to handle them. Internet abuse, poor performance, discipline and dismissal.

These are NOT textbooks for academics, but are practical books for practising managers.

What ideas do you have? What should be in the books? What are the real issues facing new leaders in the 21stC? What should be left out? What would make you buy these books for new leaders? Is there a need for training workshops based on the books? What other media should I consider?

In a nutshell: How can I write a "One minute manager", for the 21st Century, that managers and trainers need and want!?

Please E-mail me with any ideas or comments.
