Shari Storm

Thomas Dunne Books

When it comes to being a good leader, we’ve read the sports analogies, we’ve read the war analogies. But how about hitting a little closer to home?

As a mother, the following rules and tactics probably sound familiar to you: 

  • Never Underestimate the Power of Kiss-It-Make-It-Better 
  • Hold the Line on Tantrums
  • Remember the Magic Word 
  • Count to Three Before Giving a Time-Out

These are good, solid rules for how to raise children. But can these same rules make you a better boss? Absolutely.      I

n her impressive first book, Shari Storm takes the lessons attributed to parenting and shows how they can be directly applied in the workplace, making you a more effective manager and giving you the confidence to lead and shape your staff into the employees you want them to be. Shari gathers a wonderful collection of funny and inspirational stories from a wide range of executive mothers---TV producers, firefighters, accountants, teachers, baristas, corporate leaders, pilots---for an engaging, easy-to-absorb read

These pages will provide both laughs and enlightenment. For the woman who wants to excel in her business, this goes beyond your average management book.
