About the Author
Nancy Lyons is a national speaker and co-founder/CEO of Clockwork, an award-winning digital agency in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a leader in the technology industry for more than twenty-five years, she has proven that a people-first business strategy wins. She is candid, funny, and always says what everyone else in the room is afraid to say. Find her out in the world at @nylons.
This book touches on so many tough but important topics at work: fear, empathy, accountability, and more. It's like a manual to building your best work self.
Nancy Lyons doesn't screw around. She will--figuratively, of course--grab you by the scruff of your neck, hold you up in front of a mirror, and force you to take a good, long look at your professional self. And then she'll tell you how to be better. How to be better as a boss, as a colleague, as a contributor, and generally as a person people want to be within the workplace. It's not necessarily going to be easy or pleasant--hard change never is. But if you can take it, Nancy Lyons is here to help.
Anyone can make you feel like you can do it all or be it all. But Nancy offers you what you actually need: actionable, practical steps to make you and your work better. Not through hustle and hierarchy, but through humility and humanity. Nancy is a boss, but her book gives readers what most bosses haven't yet learned to give, and what every person with a job desperately needs.
Nancy Lyons is honest and entertaining while giving you a kick in the pants. This is an easy and optimistic read for all who are returning to a changed work world. Read it, and read it again.
