This is a book for developing managers. It is not about how to manage. It is about a way to develop managers that corresponds to the way managing unfolds on a daily basis; more a tutorial for building a framework of development. There is no “done” with management development, there is no “over,” no graduation, no final certification. There is today, and what we did or did not do, and what we can learn from it in either case. There is the love and challenge of managing, and setting yourself up to enjoy managing.

Mike has 25 + years consulting/coaching experience working in a wide range of industries and working environments as a designer, facilitator, coach and project team lead on major cultural change initiatives. He works tirelessly to see that managers, especially those at mid-levels receive the development in interpersonal skills that they really need. His experience includes initiatives in petroleum refining, telecommunications, financial services, healthcare and insurance systems. Since his move to the San Juan Islands in 2006 Mike has devoted himself to writing on management development and founded AMJ Group, a solo practice focused on developing peer level manager’s collaborative work communities and joined the adjunct faculty at Western teaching Managing Organizations and People and Leadership in the various tracts of the MBA program.
