Best known for his ¿Knock `Em Dead¿ series of books directed at job seekers, author Martin John Yate (co-writing here with Peter J. Sander) now turns to what happens after the seeker finds a job, does it well and gets promoted to management. He offers the know-how you need for that first management assignment: how to deal with subordinates, how to handle management duties when your subordinates are downsized away, how to create and lead teams, recruit a staff and so on. Yate goes a bit heavy on recruitment information, perhaps because he focused on that area previously. The book is directed at novice managers; anyone with business experience would find it simplistic. Though not novel, it is a useful, reasonably comprehensive collection of the principles that tend to be heavily discussed in business schools, management seminars and motivational meetings. That¿s not a bad thing, when you think about it. While this may not vault you up to the next rung on the career ladder, We note that it will be a useful addition to your basic bookshelf ¿ if you want to get out of that cubicle and into an office with room for a bookshelf.Was this review helpful?
