This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
Great leadership book! Easy read and made me really look at myself and others in leadership roles around me. - Judy B
I would recommend this to all no matter what type of leadership role you are in. It was an eye opening concept. - Craig C.
I enjoyed reading this book. Very insightful with a little bit of humor. Made me realize that I am fortunate to work for a great company/people (leaders) that follow this philosophy.
I love Wendy's no nonsense approach to leadership. I can see where I have fallen on both sides of the spectrum and the impact it had on employees. Thanks for keeping it real. - Anna T
If you want solid, straightforward advice from an HR pro about leadership, this book is for you! Ms. Sellers is charming, funny, and honest. Great read!
Great book with concise, direct tips on how to be an effective leader and how to interact within a company with different personality types.
This short book covers topics ranging from personality styles (how some personality styles rub people the wrong way) to communication (which almost always goes wrong) and lack of common sense. Chapter 10 is an "Acting Lesson" which challenges you to change (but only for 15 minutes a day). This thought-provoking book emphasizes that you must shut up and listen to be a leader people will follow. Her second book on dealing with crappy leadership and jerks at work is also available on Amazon.
Wendy Sellers is an author, HR expert, speaker, consultant and Chief People Officer who is known as The HR Lady - and is often heard saying "Suck It Up, Buttercup." The phrase has taken a whole new meaning. In the past, it was directed at what she believed were inept employees. Now it is directed at the true root cause: leaders who are unwilling to consider others' ideas or perceptions.
Being relatable and understanding others is what leadership is all about. Wendy's business experience is real and was very painful to achieve. Her pain is your gain! Let's get to work and dare we say, we just might have some fun along the way. Enjoy the short book, it is straight-forward and humorous - which is exactly how she speaks.
