Description

There’s a lot of hot air in the world of business. Wouldn’t it be nice just to hear some common sense? That’s exactly what John Timpson has got. After four decades running his family business and turning it into one of the high street’s biggest success stories, he really knows what works and what doesn’t. Upside Down Management shares with you all the wisdom he’s accumulated in that time. From being the CEO to his trademark ‘upside down management’, and from breaking the rules to following your conscience, this book tells it like it is. Upside Down Management is a fantastic insider’s view of what really makes a family business tick.
