The 'Dirty Secret' of book publishing is "It's Book Publishing, not Book Promoting". Your publisher, if you have one, prints your book,makes sure it meets certain publishing standards, gets it into book stores and onto a few online ecommerce sites, but they do very little in promoting your book, unless you are extremely popular and famous.

Research published this year by Harvard and Stanford Business Schools suggests that health problems associated with job-related anxiety account for more deaths each year in the US than Alzheimer’s disease or diabetes. It is likely that the same is true in the UK.
The combination of the Amazon story and the recent study into the impact of work-related stress means that there are important questions that all organisations should ask themselves.
These include: What type of management culture do we foster? What informal conflict management techniques do we offer to foster healthy workplace relationships? What are we doing to enable people at work to enjoy their jobs and thrive, both psychologically and physically?
Scott teaches non-violent communication techniques that help managers live healthier productive lives.
