Morag Barrett brings years of global experience and practical insights that will transform your working environment – and bottom line results.”
Keith Ferrazzi, bestselling author of Who’s Got Your Back & Never Eat Alone

Denver, CO – The American Society of Training and Development’s 2012 industry report indicated that American businesses alone spent a staggering $156 billion on employee learning and development.  Despite this investment, nearly two-thirds of organizations report that senior managers are deficient in leadership skills, and even more indicate that supervisors lack these skills.

This is the challenge that Morag Barrett addresses in her new book, Cultivate: The Power of Winning Relationships (Franklin Green, March 2014) .

The average manager spends between 70-90 percent of their time working with others, whether attending meetings, ad hoc gatherings, or responding to individual questions.  Morag states, “in the work we do with senior leaders and teams; all this interaction is a wasted opportunity without deliberate attention on developing effective working relationships.”

Lack of focus on HOW work gets done is a very short sighted approach, with real business consequences.  Barrett goes on to say, “to cultivate winning relationships means we take each relationship to the next level and build a personal connection, seeking to understand what motivates the person, what fears may be holding them back, how our individual styles are similar or different, and the implications for working together to deliver and outstanding result. Business relationships determine business success!” 

Cultivate: The Power of Winning Relationships (Franklin Green, March 2014) is full of practical insights from 20 years of global experience.  Morag helps every reader grow with real-world case studies, illuminating diagrams, a practical plans of action to improve both workplace and personal relationships.

Whether you’re a senior leader, or new in the workplace, you’ll see the world of work in a whole new way.  Morag Barrett and Cultivate will help your team, and career, blossom.
