Why you should read Managing Government Employees

Even within the labyrinth of a government agency, a good manager can inspire people and get great results. Stewart Liff draws on his 32-year government career to show you how to increase the productivity of your government agency or organization. For instance, he explains how managers’ fear of taking decisive action can cause government inefficiencies, particularly in maintaining a responsive workforce. Liff provides detailed descriptions of typical employment challenges and offers resolutions gleaned from his considerable experience. His approach enlivens what could easily be a dull lesson, particularly in regard to navigating labor issues. For government professionals in management and human resources, getAbstract recommends this clarifying, nuts-and-bolts guide to managing government employees.
