a totally new concept
for management books
There’s a legion of ambitious twenty-something women entering management
positions who may not have the time or inclination to read a traditional business
book but need some pointers on how to cope with their new roles. This unique
book is aimed right at their designer-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.
Julia Kennedy is a young woman working for a large company. When her boyfriend suddenly ends their
relationship she takes a hard look at her life and decides to concentrate on her career and promotion, which would
involve leading her co-workers.
The book follows Julia as she discovers: how to lead people who were her peers; 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 romeo.
With break-out boxes focusing on strategies and lessons learned, Julia Makes Her Move is a perfectly targeted and
innovative approach to teaching basic leadership skills and is ideal for young women wanting to develop their careers
as well as older women returning to the workforce.
Think ‘chick lit’ with an educational twist.
