Mike Pegg, International strengths-expert, writer and mentor (UK)

Fiona is a remarkable practitioner who has enabled many people and teams to build on their strengths. Her book is full of practical tools that managers can use to implement this approach.

Woven goes far beyond bringing people up to date with strengths theory. It embodies the spirit of compassion, which is caring in action. Many managers will find that they can use the in-depth exercises in their daily lives and work.

Fiona quotes Albert Camus as saying that a friend is somebody who walks beside you on the journey. Woven may well prove to be such a true friend. What we focus on we become. Fiona’s immensely practical book shows we can help people and teams to channel their energy in a positive way. We can then assist them in becoming the best they can be.

Woven is a practical, accessible and insightful introduction to strengths-based leadership and team development.

Peppered with stories and helpful analogies, Fiona writes as if she’s right there beside you; you get the sense you’ve got a wise and warm friend to help with those gnarly team challenges.

Woven is a must read for any first-time manager (and relevant for seasoned ones too).
