This book aggregates a plethora of tips and techniques believed - sometimes on the basis of solid research - to boost employee loyalty and organizational productivity. Managers need to learn tactics that will bind employees to them personally and to their companies. Author Nancy S. Ahlrichs earnestly believes in the thesis that it is important to be a manager whom employees would chose to work for, that is, a manager of choice. Her advice ranges from quite helpful to self-evident to sort of impractical. For the greatest utility, be a choosy reader: adapt her counsel to your situation. getAbstract suggests reading this through and then keeping it handy and dipping into it from time to time, as if it were a book of proverbs.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to become a manager of choice;
- How to attract and retain the best employees; and
- How to provide flextime and mentoring.
