Often find yourself explaining to your employees how they should do their jobs? Tend to duck difficult conversations? Sometimes at a loss when trying to deal with complaining, quarrelling, or underachieving employees? Need some guidance on how to support employees who want to develop?

There are plenty of books and theories about leadership. What these rarely describe, though, is HOW to manage effectively.

This book fills that void.
'No-Nonsense Leadership' helps you adopt a confident, coaching leadership style. Coaching leadership is a surprisingly effective leadership style. Your employees will take more responsibility, allowing you more time and energy for important management tasks. This book helps you recognize and bypass your reflexes and pitfalls, and teaches you coaching skills and easy-to-use conversation techniques. The practical pointers and countless real-life examples in this book enable you to immediately put it all into practice. You will soon notice that you are getting more out of your people – and out of yourself.

‘Instantly applicable in my day-to-day work. Highly relatable and a must-read for any manager who wants to save time and get the most out of themselves and their team'- Joris Herremans, Manager Digital Grandvision Benelux

‘This book is an engaging combination of self-reflection and useful stepping stones’ - Hugo de Koning, founder Young Capital
