Do you feel overwhelmed by the constant demands on your time? Are you exhausted from handling the never-ending crises of your team?

If “understaffed and overworked” describes you perfectly and you fear there may be no end in sight, this book is for you.

Despite what you may have been told, you don’t have a time-management or “prioritization” problem – you have a seat problem. The solution to reclaiming control of your life and winning back hours in your week is to overcome and master The Author vs. Editor Dilemma.

Through this book, you will be equipped with the tools to:

  • Lead your team to take ownership, show initiative and display critical thinking to solve challenges without you
