Book Signing: Julia Makes Her Move: First Steps Into Leadership
Authors: Viv Beck and Karin Kos
Publisher: Random House
There’s a legion of ambitious twenty-something women entering management positions who will never read a big scary business book but need some pointers on how to cope with their new roles. This unique book is aimed right at their Karen Walker-clad hearts. Styled as a novel, it follows a young woman called Julia who is parachuted into management and learns the hard way how to behave like a team leader.
The book follows Julia as she discovers: how to assert authority over people who were her colleagues; how to run a good meeting; how to write a budget … and what to do when you wake up the morning after office drinkies and think you might have slept with the office sleaze. With break-out boxes focusing on strategies and lessons learned, Julia is a perfectly targeted and innovative approach to teaching basic management skills and is being used by companies such as KPMG.
A must-have for all young career enthusiasts keen to step out towards leadership. Come and join us at this exclusive author signing by Karin Kos at the Rona Gallery, 151 Muritai Road Eastbourne, Lower Hutt. (Date and time to be confirmed).
