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. Our learning aids are concise, jargon-free and highly visual, and employ accelerated learning techniques for fast and effective transfer of knowledge. 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

Crucial subject for every manager
According to Matthew Gitsham, Director of the Ashridge Centre for Business in Society, sustainability “is a crucial subject that every manager today needs to understand” and the newly published Sustainability Pocketbook is a “great introduction”.  For her part, the book’s author Patricia Hind says: “Sustainability is about so much more than ‘saving the planet’. It affects all aspects of business and is about improved efficiencies and greater profitability, in other words adding value.”

Learning Portal – be our guest
Our new Learning Portal is now live. Via the portal organisations (and individuals) can access our collection of Pocketbooks (100 titles in e-book format) for an annual subscription fee. The fee is determined by a) the number of people within an organisation using the online library and b) the number of Pocketbook titles selected for inclusion within the subscription package. If you would like to find out more take a quick look at our flyer or, better still, be our guest for a week. To obtain guest access to the portal simply complete this form.
