Behaviours influence our thoughts and emotions – it’s how we learn. So, what if you could better align the behaviours of your employees to supercharge engagement, performance and business growth?

Human behaviour has historically been dominated by left-brain (transactional) thinking. Standardisation, productivity, competitive advantage, compliance and incremental growth are products of a logical left brain. But we need to relegate this thinking and empower our workforces to develop their creative, collaborative, spatially aware, big-picture, right-brained (transformational) capability if we are to adopt the best behaviour that will succeed in a rapidly changing business environment.


Written by change management specialist Tony Holmwood, Best Behaviour (Michael Hanrahan Publishing $39.95), draws upon decades of experience to provide a balanced behavioural development framework to help managers and HR leaders supercharge performance and profitability. The book sets out a unique approach to emotional development to enable leaders to motivate and coach employees in change and growth initiatives.


Best Behaviour examines how:


  • emotional development is key to creating a responsive, innovative, open culture
  • knowing our motivations and strengths builds a strong identity and a passionate workforce
  • trusting our intuition builds emotional intelligence (Ei) and enables our critical reasoning
  • learning Ei and addressing our weaknesses develops a powerful leadership cultural competence and enables proactive workplace cultures
  • managers and HR professionals can champion and coach business transformation.


Ground-breaking in its methodology, Best Behaviour empowers you and your team with the tools needed to align capability, transform cultures and drive superior business performance. A Commercial Accountant by profession, Tony Holmwood is used to focusing on business performance, business transformation and change projects.
