9781587362927: Managing People in the 21st Century: Lessons and Anecdotes from a Life in the Trenches

Management styles have changed dramatically over the past century. In this insightful, often irreverent book, a veteran manager talks about these changes and how managers and supervisors need to tailor their own styles to those of their team. Educators and trainers teach prospective managers how to manage a process or a budget. But left in the dark is how to manage people-and in the end, your success as a manager depends on how well you manage others. The author makes a case for "Consensus Management," which provides strong leadership and directions while allowing employees to participate in the decision-making process.
