a practical guide for
developing your
leadership talents
the stuff that drives you
Susan Bloch
& Philip Whiteley
Manager’s momentum – a new suite of management development books for the
leaders of the future
We’ve taken the successful approach of the momentum personal development books – active
personal coaching, applied personal values and highly stimulating delivery – and applied it to
the portfolio of skills that talented leaders of the future will want and need. The result? A set of
books and accelerated learning tools for smart managers that will equip you for a bright future
of managing talented people and entrepreneurial ventures.
These are intelligent, inspiring yet practical books on a new breed of essential managerial
topics – a far cry from an older style of management book, which too often features the same
old tired subjects drowned in dense text. Manager’s momentum is characterized by edgy,
modern subjects delivered in an easily absorbed dynamic style. These are books to make you
energized, not tired. And books that you’ll be happy to be seen with.
