The Resources

The articles and books in this link pack are resources I have found useful. All of them should support your journey to becoming an effective employee. We all have much to improve on and the links on this page have certainly helped me.

Affiliate Links

All {book} links are affiliate links to Amazon UK. This means that if you click on the link and buy the book I get a very small commission. It costs you nothing extra and the affiliate commission helps to keep the servers running for this website. I only recommend and link to book I have personally read and got value from.
