“Please read this book and ask yourself one simple question – did I ever grow up? As I read Nick’s latest work of art, I found myself realizing that I did some of these immature and child like things in my management career. Actually, I’m ashamed to admit it. Thanks Nick for a wonderful book – another compulsory reference book for managers who are honest enough to admit they have yet to grow up. As I read it I could not help thinking of Gandhi’s immortal words: ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’”
-- Trevor Gay, UK management and leadership trainer, speaker, and author
“Once again Nick has produced an engaging, concise, and actionable offering of essential workplace advice, and this time for all of us. Another winner by the author of Lead Well and Prosper. A must read for everyone who works.”
-- Jim Stroup, author of Managing Leadership is Fine
“It’s true - Acting up DOES bring everyone down. Nick McCormick offers tips to nip this behavior in the bud and get on with the job at hand.”
-- Wayne Turmel, president Greatwebmeetings.com and host of the “Cranky Middle Manager Show”
"Nick McCormick's ability to link damaging workplace behaviors to their childish origins helps us plainly see how destructive these can be to our organization, team, and our own career. Each chapter details the anatomy of a particular behavior and includes great dialog sketches, which are Nick's trademark. This book gets to the point quickly using examples we can all relate to and then coaches/mentors the reader with pointed check lists of do's and don'ts."
-- Susan Stamm, author of 42 Rules of Employee Engagement, president of The TEAM Approach
