From Booklist:

Today’s supervisors, managers, and leaders in any work environment need to balance production goals with concerns for people in continually changing settings. This practical guide offers specific strategies for those new to a supervisory role, including tips on creating a positive work ethic and building a team; advice on numerous issues facing supervisors, such as hiring, interviewing, training, and firing; and, additionally, guidance on managing budgets and facilities. Among the numerous useful checklists and samples are “Evaluating Your Team Development,” “Sample Script for a Reference Check,” “Budget Request and Justification,” and “Different Rewards for Different Generations.” Although the book, an update of an edition published in 2005, is aimed generally at new supervisors, more experienced managers confronting new challenges may find it a welcome refresher and reference. --Susan Awe
