Great textbook for managers August 18, 2011
This textbook is a very easy read about a very simple concept that will make managers into mentors of future leaders instead of just people who just tell other people what to do. Fantastically easy to apply to your own work situation immediately, it made a big difference in my management work and I have no reason to think that it can't do the same for you.
