Being a manager is one of the most challenging roles a person can take on in their professional life. When done extremely well, it catapults a person into career success and unlocks a team’s full potential. Yet, few people are provided with real training, coaching, or tools on how to manage well.
In this book, James Potter and Mike Kavanagh dissect every aspect of becoming a top-tier manager and distill it into practical tools and techniques—perfect for brand new and experienced managers alike. Clear, insightful, and eminently approachable, The Successful Manager is like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a world-class mentor who offers you the keys to mastering the art and science of successful management.

Coach's Plan is the unexpected system revolutionizing people's productivity and well-being. Read it in about 1 hour and watch this simple approach transform you.
Most humans are, well, human. Their productivity ebbs and flows with the tides of their motivation levels. Their ability to implement and stick with personal habit changes is as variable as their shifting moods. They frequently fall victim to the villain we all know as procrastination. But most humans haven’t implemented Coach’s Plan.
In this short manual, Mike Kavanagh introduces a simple, powerful system for productivity and personal change that you can read in about an hour and begin implementing today. This system came to him spontaneously, he employed it with great skepticism, yet he watched as it helped him break out of a rut, launch two books and a business in under a year, kick his sugar habit, rebuild a daily exercise regimen, and regain some good old-fashioned mental and physical well-being.
Whatever our personal goals are, there’s no need for the struggle and excessive effort. Kavanagh offers us a simple solution worthy of becoming our new mantra: Trust Coach’s Plan.
What we do for work is a huge part of our lives. If we are grinding it out at a job we don’t like, it can be a cause of tremendous stress and unhappiness. But if we are doing work we love, it can be a source of deep joy and fulfillment. This is the promise of pursuing a calling—of finding work that is true to who we are and what we love. Many of us feel stuck. We don’t feel like we have a calling. We lack clarity. Or we know what we want to do but struggle to take the leap and go for it.
In What Is Your Calling? The Journey to Find Work You Love, Mike Kavanagh offers an encouraging guide to finding and pursuing work that brings us a sense of purpose and passion. With empathy, humor, and insight, Kavanagh weaves together practical wisdom, an account of his own winding journey, and inspiring stories of real people who have taken the risk to follow their heart, to lead us on the path of pursuing work we love.
