Summary

To be an effective manager, you must be an effective leader. And while some people have innate leadership ability, most people need to learn this skill. Through the use of theory, application and skill development exercises, Management Effectiveness trains readers to know what leadership is and how it must be integrally linked to management for it to succeed. It provides detailed information about communication, empowerment, delegation, influencing, and change management. In addition, the book provides hands-on, real-world, step-by-step models to demonstrate how day-to-day leadership functions are handled. Through the use of this three-stage approach of theory, application, and skill development, Robert Lussier and Christopher Achua have created a leadership manual of the highest caliber that should be on every manager's bookshelf.
