Rules of Engagement, Carolyn Swora

Business & Finance, Civilization & Culture, Education & Teaching, Guidebook & Reference

What is it truly like to work for you?

Look around the typical workplace. People are overwhelmed. They’re unengaged; or worse, disengaged. AT home and at work, the world is changing too fast, and people simply can’t cope. No matter how skillful someone is, faced with a barrage of new information, unstructured data, and “disruptive” technologies, they simply don’t get the opportunity to leverage those skills, let alone “shine” in their role. Now add into that mix markets in turmoil, an ever-shifting competitive landscape, and increasingly sophisticated and demanding customers.

The inevitable result?

Employees who are disconnected. Disconnected from their employer. Disconnected from their leaders. Disconnected from their customers. Disconnected from each other. So, they battle through, their performance gradually worsening, until they take either sick leave or they simply walk away in hopes of finding something better somewhere—anywhere—else.

In Rules of Engagement, Carolyn Swora draws on 20 years’ experience as a senior leader in a highly volatile industry to present a new way of thinking, leading, and working that addresses the complexity and overwhelm of modern working life so that your employees can develop new skills to thrive in this workplace of the future (that has rapidly become the workplace of today).

Rules of Engagement is an informative, useful and essential book for those in business and those who are in management. Rules of Engagement is an outstanding book that is highly informative as well as engaging because even if you are not in some form of leadership, you will still find the book engaging thanks to the wealth of knowledge, research and the exceptional and positive attitude courtesy of the sensational author Carolyn Swora. Rules of Engagement is an entertaining book, but you may be thinking “how can a book about business be entertaining?” and I would say that it is entertaining because Swora from start to finish keeps her readers hooked with her outlook on the topics explored in the book and the incredible, intriguing facts and passages she writes. That is why Rules of Engagement is so much more than a guidebook on how to better manage, it is instead a guidebook that will make you want to read and will charm you with Swora’s positive outlook and fantastic techniques and that is why I already have to recommend this gem of a book.

Rules of Engagement is written by author Carolynn Swora who has twenty years experience as a senior leader, and throughout Rules of Engagement, Swora will share the techniques she used to help her team enjoy and love their job even when it gets tough. Swora starts off her book by explaining that in today’s society in which employees are overworked, underpaid and a wealth of new knowledge needs to be learned all the time, it can make workers feel overwhelmed and disconnected from their job. Instead of working and doing their job, workers will instead be thinking about other jobs and how they can get out of the current one and find a new job and Swora explains that this is a continuous cycle. It is true; also, everybody who works in a job they do not love is disconnected, and when everybody in the company becomes disconnected it fails, and it is a vicious cycle that is never-ending. That is why Carolyn Swora has written Rules of Engagement so that she can draw from her twenty years experience and invigorate life into workplaces all over the world by presenting and sharing a new way of leading, thinking and working which will perfectly compliment every worker and make them feel fulfilled in their job.

Rules of Engagement is a sensational book from an incredible author. Carolyn Swora is clearly an educated and talented woman because Rules of Engagement is an in-depth book full of a wealth of information that will astound and charm readers. Although Rules of Engagement does have a lot of information laced between its pages, it is in no way ever confusing and too much. Instead, Swora perfectly combines facts with entertainment, and the result is a compelling, informative book that should not be missed!

The journey Carolyn takes her readers on is incredible and will open many readers eyes to the world we live in today. Swora explores many topics all thoroughly, and the result is eye-opening and sometimes shocking. I loved how Swora did this in Rules of Engagement and decided to not only inform her readers but also open their eyes to the harsh realities and again, the result was incredible.

In my review, I expressed briefly that Swora’s text is never once confusing and this is undoubtedly true. In fact, Swora’s writing is so easy to read and understand that even beginners will be able to read, understand and love the book because it applies to everybody with varying degrees of knowledge. The book can be read by those who have been in management for years or those who are just starting out, Swora has ensured that all of her readers are accommodated for, and that to me is wonderful.

Carolyn Swora has managed to accomplish the almost impossible… she has managed to write a business book that is not only informative and useful but also entertaining! I have to admit that I was surprised by just how enjoyable the book was; I believe this is thanks to Swora’s easy to read, fluent writing style and her ability to keep her readers engaged from the start with the discussion of a new topic.

Overall Rules of Engagement is a fascinating, useful and informative guide that everybody in business or starting out in business leadership should read because it will provide you with the tools necessary to grow and help your employees. As the book is genuinely brilliant and written flawlessly I, of course, have to award the book five stars! So please, have a read of Rules of Engagement and be informed as well as entertained! Be sure to keep an eye out for my spotlight for Carolyn Swora too which will be live next week!
