Welcome To Management Pocketbooks

Welcome. We publish workplace learning and development resources, train the trainer materials, books on leadership training and team building, and guides to inter-personal skills and self-development.

From NLP, mentoring, motivation, coaching and emotional intelligence to project management, problem behaviour, managing change and time management, we have a comprehensive range of pocket books for all human resource development needs.

You can buy pocketbooks in either paperback or e-book format. Alternatively, multi-user licences are available - a cost effective way of delivering practical L&D support to your entire team. Here is a link for further information: multi-user licences
