This book has some good insights in and was helpful for different levels of management. Having recently completed a management course a lot was already known to me; we also use DISC profiles within our business. However, this was one of the first management books I’ve seen to use and explain the DISC system and I really liked that aspect, it was really easy to read and understand and will be recommending it to others for that reason!

The title of this book is what caught my eye. I thought it was the perfect way of capturing when a team can have some difficulties working together, when personalities get in the way of productivity or working together. Your Team Loves Mondays...Right? is a practical guide to management, and encompasses a range of topics from key management traits to the entire process through onboarding to offbording. This book is suitable for managers or for would-be managers. It’s also helpful to those of us who are not managers but must work in a team and under managers. There are practical tips and plenty of examples. Kristin A. Sherry writes from her vast practical experience. The book starts with breaking down the most effective characteristics of managers and moves into an assessment for the reader’s management style and fit for managerial work. The book then moves into the many possible stages of management, from hiring workers, induction training, working with their teams and training them up to the way in which to best go about discharging employees. There are case studies and examples. There are also many tools, self-assessments, and further resources links, all of which make this a practical and useful guide to management. The publishers provided an advanced readers copy of this book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.
