Book launch at the Walkie Talkie

The Leaders Lab team are counting down the hours to the launch of Kate Mercer’s new book ‘A Buzz in the Building: How to build and lead a brilliant organisation‘ which is taking place later today.

We were fortunate enough to be invited to use the offices of DWF on London’s Fenchurch Street, which happen to be in the landmark Walkie Talkie building – so we’re hoping for some stunning views across the city tonight! Friends, partners, colleagues, clients, suppliers and contacts will be coming along to toast the book and admire the vista.

Here’s a brief synopsis on A Buzz in the Building:

Do you know where your organisation is heading and how your leadership will take it there? Do people working in your organisation always do what you want them to do? Is your team consistently enthusiastic, engaged and motivated to do its best? A Buzz in the Building will change the way you think about your business.

The wisdom and stories gleaned from Kate Mercer’s lifetime of working with business leaders make this book an engaging and inspirational read. Kate takes you through the mindsets and skills required to create an organisation that functions as smoothly and organically as a beehive.

When you’ve read A Buzz in the Building you will know how to: create great teams of people who know where your organisation is going and are enthusiastic about playing their part in getting there; communicate so people do what you want them to do – willingly and without having to be chased all the time; and build a brilliant organisation that is as successful as the business it supports, that clients want to work with, and new employees want to join and stay part of.

Kate’s book is out to buy from today, priced at £14.99 plus postage – please see our book page if you would like to purchase a copy.
