Although after working low down in the pecking-order in most of the varied places I have worked, the last few years I find myself managing people as opposed to being managed. Former manager quote:”You are the single most difficult person I have ever managed.” Book quote:”Effective managers manage themselves and the people they work with (not ‘over’), so that the organization and the people profit from their presence.”
Great stuff. Recognised 2000 years ago by the greatest manager: ‘Therefore, whatever you wish men to do to you, you must likewise do to them..‘(Mt 7:12). Anyway, although not a fan of motivational style books, this revised edition follows a simple, easy format, can be read between (or even during) business meetings, and if the principles were applied, notice the difference. I can’t vouch for what happens if you apply it by the letter, I’m too lazy!
