Synopsis:

Strategies that make managers heroes to their staffs and their bosses

  • Address potentially sticky situations head-on
  • Give employees room to stretch
  • Be a management gladiator
  • Be positively unpredictable when it counts
  • Celebrate the small stuff
  • Infuse passion-and let it show
  • Discover employee motivators and use them
  • Develop leaders, not followers
  • Get rid of the fickle finger of blame
  • Use failure as a vehicle for success
