Compact guide to developing your people step-by-step
Though there are shelves of books about training, coaching and development out there, this book has the virtue of focus. Rather than trying to be a comprehensive guide, Patrick Forsyth teaches you how to train effectively without getting bogged down in theory, big budgets, politics or an endless number of possible approaches. He stresses how important staff development is to your competitive position, and shows you how to carry out on-the-job and formal training. His advice is practical and offers some surprising twists. Forsyth provides bulleted lists, checklists and a sample form or two to help you implement this. Although his use of colloquial U.K. English might make U.S. readers pause for a moment or two, it provides the right touch for his emphasis on action, simplicity and focus. getAbstract recommends this book to front-line managers who want to develop their employees.Was this review helpful?
