Management expert Jurgen Appelo offers a unique formula for making your organization vibrant and productive. Appelo shows you how to put his advice into practice. Instead of focusing on theoretical approaches to building motivation and contentment, he provides games and exercises that you can implement. The playful layout of his pages may enthrall you – or drive you crazy. Yet wisdom, common sense and solutions any organization can use lurk within the busy graphics and comic book format. This is solid HR advice for someone new to the field or anyone who appreciates having it packaged so cleverly, but it’s not news to experienced practitioners. getAbstract recommends Appelo’s sound management philosophy and hands-on techniques for boosting excellence, productivity and morale to entrepreneurs, executives, HR professionals and managers at every level.
In this summary, you will learn
- What strategies you can use to create and sustain a happy, productive workplace,
- How “the seven levels of delegation” can help you manage more effectively, and
- Why organizations need to define and live by their core values.
