9781854183323: Managing People for the First Time

Absolutely everybody in all types of organizations--business, professional, governmental, academic--has to make the critical leap to managing people for the first time. There are countless books on managing people but very little written from the perspective of the novice, someone faced with the daunting task of changing from following instructions to giving them.

First published by Pitman, the book instantly caught on and was widely adopted in businesses and in particular the public sector. It has now been fully updated and revise to reflect recent changes theory and practice.

About the Author:

Julie Lewthwaite is a senior consultant at Project North East, a local enterprise and economic development agency. She is involved in the design and development of training materials for prospective and actual owner-managers and for supervisors and managers who wish to develop their skills.

Review:

"The value of this book is that it makes a worthwhile attempt to help the first-time manager. Combining training material with a storyline involving real people makes it a lot more digestible than a textbook. I was 39 before I became a director of a new business, with almost no experience of managing other people or relationships ... Lewthwaite's book would have been extremely useful." (People Management)

"There are books on managing people by the truckload, but little specifically for the first time manager . .. The whole range of management knowledge, theory and practice is contained in this easily absorbed text." (Business Executive)

"For a first time employer, I believe her new book would be an invaluable tool for learning the skills and techniques needed to put together and develop a successful team. I wish I had read this a year ago when I started my business! It is a privilege to learn from someone so experienced and skillful in managing people." (James Murray Wells, Managing Director, Glasses Direct)

"Leaves no stone unturned...All aspects of the art of management are explored ... full of self-assessment checklists and bullet points." (Accounting Technician)
