The Best Christmas Gift For Bosses - Multi-Awarding Winning Book, 'Don't Bring It To Work' By Sylvia Lafair

Sylvia Lafair is the founder of Creative Energy Options and the world’s leading authority in Pattern Breakthrough Leadership Development, a Top Global Leadership Guru and award-winning author

Choosing the right gift for the boss can be a monumental challenge. It's one of those problems we struggle with for days or weeks perhaps. The problem can be easily solved by making the wise choice - a gift that will make the boss's job easier. Sylvia Lafair's multi-award winning business book, 'Don't Bring It To Work', may not only be the perfect Christmas gift for your boss, manager or coworker - it might end up being the catalyst that transforms your entire workplace. 

We all know the type--maybe he's the office cutup, or the woman who manages to look busy but avoids work, or the guy who is the long-suffering victim--there's one in every office. These behaviors are painfully annoying and stir up conflict in the office.

How can you get to the bottom of workplace behaviors that simply don't work for you or your organization?

'Don't Bring It to Work' explores what happens when patterns and habits originally created to cope with family conflicts are unleashed in the workplace. This groundbreaking book draws on the success of Sylvia Lafair's Pattern Breakthrough program Total Leadership Connections. Throughout the book Lafair shows how to break the cycle of pattern repetition and offers the tools that can turn unhealthy family baggage into creative energy that will foster better workplace associations and career success.

Lafair identifies the thirteen most common patterns that correspond to characters familiar to anyone who has ever worked in an office: Super Achiever, Rebel, Persecutor, Victim, Rescuer, Clown, Martyr, Splitter, Procrastinator, Drama Queen or King, Pleaser, Denier, and Avoider. To help overcome destructive behavior problems, she maps out the three main steps for becoming aware of patterns and finding the way OUT:

Observe your behavior to discern underlying patterns
Understand and probe deeper to discover the origins of these patterns
Transform your behavior by taking action to change

The book includes a wealth of real-life anecdotes and practical, workbook-style exercises that clearly show how anyone can get beyond old, outmoded attempts at conflict resolution and empower themselves to make profound differences both at work and in their personal lives.

'Don't Bring It To Work' has taken a large number of high level industry awards. Geoffrey James with placed it on a list of '9 Books Every Boss Should Read'. It was named a Best Book in the Business and Leadership Category by Nautilus Books and took awards from the London Book Festival and from the Paris Book Festival in 2012.

The book has garnered high praise from industry leaders across the entire business spectrum:

“Sylvia Lafair is an amazingly acute analyzer of human behavior. She’s pinpointed the patterns that can make you sink, soar, or simply muddle through your career. If you want to take your work life, your team, or your company to the next level – or better yet – the level beyond that, read this important book. The payoff is the elusive breakthrough you’ve sought for years.” -- Tyler Mathisen, CNBC co-host of Power Lunch and Nightly Business Report

“In this smart, useful and much needed book on how to work and play well with others, Sylvia Lafair teaches us how to recognize and change our own ineffective behavior and how to help others get past the family baggage and office politics that prevent all of us from doing our best work.” -- Daniel Pink, author of books about work management that include “A Whole New Mind” and “Drive”

"This book is emotionally engaging and the message is fantastic."-- Robert Sutton, Professor of Management Science and Engineering, Stanford University

"This engaging book has a powerful core message. We’re bringing family dynamics – from childhood and even from our parents’ childhoods – to work. – and the results are not pretty. Packed with stories of workplace dynamics gone awry – and, then, amazingly enough, transformed by Lafair’s compassionate approach – the book is immensely readable. You will be motivated to create change for the better." -- Amy Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School, Harvard University

"This book distills various behavior patterns that we have at work and helps you identify negative patterns and takes you through personal transformation. Every leader and manager should read this book! Wow! It’s wonderful." -- Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte Design, Author, "slide:ology"

"Wonderful insights for anyone who manages a business, works in a business, or leads a business. Read it now." -- Michael E. Gerber, Author, "The E-Myth Books"

Author Sylvia Lafair is the CEO of Creative Energy Options Inc. Creative Energy Options Inc. challenges the status quo of workplace relationships. They think differently and encourage leaders to also think differently.

Over the past 30 years their team has searched for the hidden emotional mechanisms at work in a typical office environment.

Leadership Is Defined By Values In Politics, Sports Or Business Says Keynote Speaker And Leadership Training Expert Rocky Romanella, Senior Partner Of 3SIXTY Management Services

A highly sought keynote speaker and trainer, Romanella is founder and principal of 3SIXTY Management Services, LLC. He has over 40 years of leadership at Fortune 100's and most recently served as Chief Executive Officer and Director for UniTek Global Services, after retiring from a 36-year career with UPS.

Thousands of books have been written on the subject of leadership. Keynote speakers on the subject number in the tens of thousands. Leadership is something that greatly concerns us all. Whether it's business, government or any other type of organization, leaders set the tone of any organization or group from the top down.

Leaders are not only found in business or government however. Personal leadership styles will affect spouses, children, students or anybody else within a particular sphere of influence. While leadership (good or bad) is a primary focal point for most of us, there is another concept that supersedes any leadership style or strategy.


Without a strong set of values, the best leadership strategy can go awry. With a good value structure in place, the worst leadership approach can right itself and eventually lead to the desired outcome.

Rocky Romanella is a successful keynote speaker and author of a cutting edge book on leadership entitled 'Tighten The Lug Nuts'. He puts values front and center and demonstrates why our core values should underlay everything we attempt, regardless of the roles we play.

"Values are all about people and managing acceptable behavior," Romanella stated. "The truth is you’re going to have to work at whatever it is you hope to achieve in your life. But, it’s how you face it that speaks to your character.

"Your true character is defined by your honesty of purpose. Your purpose is sacred and authentic. Honesty is what’s at the core of your moral character. It’s being trustworthy, loyal, fair, sincere and true, even when it is difficult to be. It is not only how you create your values, but also how you add value to the lives of others.

"It starts with creating a strong value system, which then must relate to your personal or professional mission and vision. Your personal brand.  It must be a guide for all you do. It must align with your personal value system.

"In business, it should start with the people you recruit and hire, in your personal life it may be the people you choose to associate with as friends, business partners and acquaintances."

A winner of the UPS Chairman’s Award for Excellence, Romanella is an energetic keynote speaker and trainer with a legacy of motivating teams to achieve their best. He pulls in audiences with real life stories from an illustrious career spanning nearly 40 years at one of the most recognized and admired brands in the world, UPS and later as CEO & Director for UniTek Global Services, a mid-cap telecommunications solution company. Rocky brings leadership expertise in supply chain, logistics and transportation, retail, sales and operational excellence strategy, telecommunications engineering/construction management and installation. Having led many company sales efforts, rapidly building brands, restructuring events and developing a culture needed to integrate past acquisitions, he inspires audiences to create a unified company with one vision.

He has garnered praise for his ability to connect to a wide range of audiences with his storytelling ability and innate charisma. Richard Snowden, President of RavenHouse International said, "An engaging speaker and facilitator, Rocky leads business executives to break-through results through break-through thinking." Conrad Swanson, Sr. VP Agency Development of Arpin Van Lines Inc. stated, "Rocky inspired many to look inward and improve the way they operate their businesses and lead their team members."

Rocky Romanella is available for speaking engagements and media interviews. He can be contacted using the information below or by email at 'Tighten The Lug Nuts' is available at book outlets everywhere. Full information on 3SIXTY Management Services is available at the company's website at

Author Joseph Ganci Named As One Of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ In 2017 Book Awards

Ganci was picked from a field of hundreds of authors. His book, entitled ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory,’ is a revelatory spiritual book that offers a penetrating vision of long-held Bible mysteries

Author Joseph Ganci has been named as a finalist in the ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ Book Awards. He is the author of ‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory,.’ Ganci was chosen from a field of authors through a public voting process.

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, meaning foundation of peace. David conquers Jerusalem and makes it his capital, and so too the capital of Israel. David is drawn to the place and pitches a tent to house The Ark of the covenant. The Ark and the shelter known as David’s booth patiently await his son Solomon to the build, a house of cedar and stone, for a permanent home for God.

"Set apart are humble passions, divine in black and white. It is the blending of the two that yield the enlightening vapor of angelic understandings.

"Thank you for the precious gift of acknowledgment," Ganci stated

In this compelling new book, Ganci pierces the veil with a penetrating vision of long-held Bible mysteries that are far and away daring and unusual. He works within a framework of an engaging and dramatized fiction that, while exceedingly rich in detail, remains faithful to uphold spiritual principles. He bases his work on three primary pillars:

The rock-solid cornerstone is biblical history and geography.
The creative arch is revelatory in its timing and issues.
The research is concrete, firmly rooted in customs, languages, and traditions.

The result is that book lovers are transported into the very midst of ancient conflicts and come away with an entirely fresh perspective on mystical teachings found in scripture, now living lessons filled with adventure that inspires wonder yet remain practical answering the challenges of everyday life.

'Gideon: The Sound and the Glory' has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. A recent reviewer stated, "Joseph Ganci’s prose is arresting, peppered with fantastic imagery and succinct descriptions of plot, characters, and setting. The themes remain masterfully recreated. Ganci stitches together the storyline in a way that allows the reader to enjoy both the inspiration and the accompanying action. The book explores compelling spiritual and political subjects, capturing the conflicts and the dynamics of life within the community of God's chosen people. Gideon: The Sound and the Glory will appeal to fans of political thrillers, adventure, and conflict-driven stories laced with intense action." Other reviewers have used phrases such as "riveting," "amazing" "deftly crafted" and "highly recommended."

‘Gideon The Sound And The Glory,’ will be available as a free download on Amazon as part of a Book Butterfly and Freebooksy promotion - from December 13 through December 17, 2017

Ganci has also announced he will make his book available as a fundraising tool for like-minded associations and charities. Donors can receive an eBook version of 'Gideon' in exchange for a donation to a worthy cause. For more details, contact Joseph via email.
