Authors Steve Chandler and Scott Richardson prove that sometimes the simplest ideas make the most sense. Residents of the corporate world will identify with their observations and, in most cases, will agree with their recommendations. The book moves along rapidly, is loaded with inspirational gems and may encourage leaders to rethink their managerial style. One curveball: if you have trouble relating to sports analogies, look out - this book is full of them. Despite this, the authors succinctly explain 100 straightforward nuggets of motivational advice in short chapters laced with pithy quotes. These techniques must be applied, not just conceptualized. As the authors warn skeptics, practice makes perfect. getAbstract believes that managers or executives interested in getting the best out of their employees - particularly by helping them feel self-motivated - would be wise to invest an evening with this book (and you’ll find some dandy motivational quotes to use in your next meeting).
In this summary, you will learn
- How to use basic management techniques to get the best work from other people; and
- How to get your employees to motivate themselves.
