Lead Well and Prosper
Are you a manager? Are you a good one? If you are not sure, take the quiz in Nick McCormick's new book, "Lead Well and Prosper: 15 Successful Strategies for Becoming a Good Manager". You might be surprised at what you learn about yourself.
McCormick, a veteran manager in the information technology sector, argues that management is in a state of crisis. With this compact read he offers a solution to the crisis, giving managers of any level the direction necessary to become good managers.
"Managers don't become poor on purpose," he points out. "They don't aspire to mediocrity. In fact, many believe they are doing quite splendidly. They have the best intentions and work very hard. They just don't work on the right things."
The book is divided into 15 Chapters - each covering a tip for management success – and all begin with a real-life management situation showing some of the common mistakes managers make.
The tips themselves include such fundamentals as adopt a serving attitude, provide honest and timely feedback, share information, treat people like human beings, do the right thing, and clean up your own house first.
Presented in an easy-to-read, enthusiastic format, this is a useful real-world guide to becoming a more effective and successful manager.
