New or struggling managers will enjoy this practical, easy-to-read book of management tips, but experienced managers should take a look, too. Richard Templar writes in a "straight-from-the-cuff" style (no dry textbook terminology or dusty case studies here). He packs his manual with great, even if a bit obvious, lists of advice. getAbstract recommends this breezy, practical rulebook. To be a better manager, read it and ask yourself if you are still following the best practices. If you know what to do, are you doing it? If you don’t know what to do, start reading.
In this summary, you will learn
- What experienced managers would tell you if they could - and what management classes often forget to tell you;
- How to manage your staffers and yourself; and
- Why knowing good management tactics isn’t enough (you must use them).
