"Must-read for new managers."

Chief Marketing Officer, 7Nine Enterpreise Management Corp.

"An indispensible leadership resource that everyone can use."

Director, Lockheed Martin

"Tamica Sears took her personal experiences and turned them into lessons for leaders (if they would read and understand) I read it in one sitting while jumping up and down and clenching my fists. I saw so much of myself through her experiences. Toxic leadership affects everyone in negative ways and it needs to change. Thank you for sharing and letting us know we are not alone."

"A must-read for every good or bad boss out there! The book is so well written with observations supported by the author's first-hand experiences, which I found fun and engaging. I just ordered a second book to gift a friend!"

"Real talk. The only shame in the game is if you aren’t willing to hear it and this book DELIVERS. Highly relatable, fair, humorous and full of the reminders and reflections that inspire change, this book is for those emerging or expanding into leadership positions, who need a gut check, or are finally willing to accept the old school/my way is truly tanking their career."

"As easy and enjoyable to read as it is impactful and valuable to anyone in leadership and anyone who aspires to be effective in leadership. Light hearted yet profound, jam packed with practical take aways. As a minority woman, Sears is uniquely positioned to speak to issues that have been egregiously ignored but aren’t going away and clearly brings decades of real insight and hard-won perspectives from both sides of the HR desk to this book. A gem."
