What people are saying about How Did My Family Get In My Office?!
"This thought-provoking book is formatted in a manner that takes the reader through the personal family experiences of a variety of successful leaders, reveals how each experience molded the leadership style of the individual particularly in regards to conflict management and finally provides tangible points that the reader can reflect upon. The reader is invariably taken on an emotional journey awash in memories of their own childhood experiences, parenting style and experiences in the workplace which range from unsettling to reaffirming. Ultimately the author demonstrates not only how our work lives are affected by our family experiences but also how a positive impact is possible with the help of insight and perspective."

"Warren Bennis said that “we lead from the essence of who we are.” It is difficult to escape the personality that is heavily cultivated – and often curated – by our upbringing. In How Did My Family Get in My Office?!, in Regina’s story we see the evidence of two parents bestowing their aspirations on their daughter, yet they are strikingly different in message and modeling. What’s redeeming for Regina – and any self-aware leader – is the deep commitment she developed to recognize her gifts and recalibrate how to “be seen” in the workplace through a lens of a now empowered woman. In her writing debut, Bonnie Artman Fox has nailed the family dynamic that shows up in the workplace - read this book to affirm your own understanding of identity and work!"
"Excellent book if you have coached individuals in the workplace and need a “Focus” for what to really coach and talk about. Each of the scenarios takes me to a different situation in my own work experience. The strategies are spot on yet simplistic enough to apply. And the Self-Reflection questions are great for the reader, the coach who is facilitating, and the team that wants something concrete and constructive to work on. This is a book that you will want in print, filled with post-its, dog-eared pages, and writing in the margins."

"Our school district has a Teacher Executive Institute for teacher leaders. A local business (Penco Products Inc.) sponsored a day and used Bonnie's book as the foundation for professional development. The day was focused on managing conflict. Participants had the opportunity to read the book, How Did My Family Get in My Office?! (a gift ahead of time from Penco) and we had the incredible opportunity to zoom with the author! Bonnie Artman Fox is an outstanding author and an incredibly gifted speaker! If you ever wonder why you, your spouse, or coworkers respond to conflict in a particular way, read the book! Bonnie offers practical strategies for managing conflict and building relationships. Visit her website and book her for PD right away!"
