Step-by-step guide to mediation
Just published, the Mediation Pocketbook will help managers to understand what creates and sustains conflict and describes a step-by-step approach for dealing with it. The book sets out the skills that are required and what tools and techniques are available and how they can be deployed to achieve positive outcomes.

How’s your confidence?
Release of our new title on mediation follows publication of the Confidence Pocketbook. Its tips and techniques will help you grow in confidence, grasp life's challenges and fulfil your ambitions. Confidence matters because a lack of it can stop you going after what you really want in life. The focus of this book is on acquiring real confidence that is substantial and justifiable.

New editions – they keep coming
With new editions of the Manager’s, Training Evaluation and Developing People pocketbooks already published this year, our busy editorial team are nearing completion of several other new editions including those on influencing, interviewing, learning needs analysis and marketing. More details to follow about this and about the brand new Transformative Change Pocketbook.
