The Broken Rules of Engagement (Author Interview)

The Broken Rules of Engagement looks like a great business book. Any plans to make it into a series?
Yes, definitely. It is a long term plan. For now I'm concentrating mainly on conducting symposiums.

What do you think makes a great business book?
A great business book should be able to identify and exposes the business flaws and deficiencies. Most importantly it must be able to compliment where its due and still be able to provide recommendations on critical areas that requires improvements. The book should be able to uplift the morale of the workforce and reinforce employees' engagement.

Last but not least, it should also provide readers with the strategy and a road map to guide on how to successfully achieve their goals. Given the above, a good business book will assist entities to yield desired profitability.

What inspired you when writing The Broken Rules of Engagement?
The Broken Rules of Engagement at the workplace is real. We are exposed to it everyday and everywhere in various organisations. What inspired me the most was the need and benefit of exposing and put on the table issues that are least conferred at the workplace. Those are issues that are detrimental and are negatively affecting both employees and the business operations, hence The Broken Rules of Engagement book. I couldn't wait to see the outcome, its effect on readers and the workforce, and being the one to do the due diligence and walk through the narrow path, was just exciting.

What are your ambitions for your writing career? Full time? Part time?
I'm planning on doing it full time with no intention of leaving my current occupation. I have finished my 2nd book already, a must read "Deactivating the Code of Failure." It should be out in the market by the end of February 2019.

When did you decide to become a writer?
In 2018, after being such an introvert, thinker and an analyst in my own right for so long. I was editing a Christian book for my husband. As I was working on it, I just developed a quest to write all of a sudden. Ideas started flooding in my mind, overwhelmed me and the rest was history. I guess having seen someone close to me doing it, it has assisted me to understand the process and learn the ropes.

When writing The Broken Rules of Engagement did anything stand out as particularly challenging?
"The bottom up approach."
As much as I had ideas and concepts. The challenging part for me was how do I get my message to come across to the targeted audience and what would be the approach. But that was just it! My job title in the corporate business sector does not really put me in a position to qualify to share a hint nor advise in any way in this business world and that comes naturally with the nature of my job.

Eventually I reckoned that in a way, I am perfectly positioned and stationed exactly where I needed to be to convey my message in this book. You will notice that I have expressed myself in my book through the bottom up approach.
As seen it happening, disregarding employees at operational levels has landed many CEOs and their executives in hot water, some are facing legal battles whereas on the other hand others are shutting down their businesses. In order to achieve the desired outcome, Top management should involve teams at all levels (operations) in strategic planning. This will help to build a shared vision, and increases each individual's motivation to see plans succeed as opposed to Top down strategy.

How did you come up with the ideas and concepts in The Broken Rules of Engagement?
I was inspired by the Socio-economic conditions. The day to day running of organisations and how it is affecting the workforce, operations process, productivity and the lack of sustainability.

The concept behind this book is to enlighten Top management on how to effectively analyze their organizational internal human resources environment, analyze the operational internal controls and reinforcing good business ethics and conduct policy.

What do you like to do when not writing?
I love travelling with my family and reading books.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?
