Ideas to help your team develop personally and professionally.

It is a bit like a new baby. My new book 'The Village That Could" is a fable - an inspirational tale about resilience in challenging times.

The key ideas are 'The 15 ways to develop your resilience'.

 The format is like 'Who Moved My Cheese' - big print, easy to read and with the key ideas prominently displayed as you read. I've added around 20 pages of commentary about how to use the key ideas and the research they are based on.

The Village That Could complements my book 'Success at work and at home' which is about emotional intelligence and has much more about the research on resilience.
