Why you should read Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager

Leadership by instinct might work in some cases with naturally charming, supportive managers. However, techniques that work for such intuitive executives won’t necessarily work for everyone else. In contrast, “evidence-based management” uses scientifically proven methods all managers can employ to help staff members reach their highest potential. At least that’s the premise organizational psychologist Gary P. Latham puts forth in this extremely well-thought-out, superbly organized management methodology for hiring, training, motivating and evaluating employees. While his evidence-based processes are all sound managerial tactics, you’ll see a strong resemblance to anecdotal approaches – only with better backing. getAbstract recommends this readable, practical handbook to anyone who manages other people.
