Much better than your average managerial book.
When I was asked to read this book I can honestly say I wasn't thrilled. But truthfully it was very easy to read, very pleasant, and I truly enjoyed it. It is especially good for those who cannot stand the mundane reading of typical management books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Managing from the Heart
Once upon a time, in the early ’90s, a quartet of Atlanta organizational consultants – Hyler Bracey, Jack Rosenblum, Aubrey Sanford and Roy Trueblood – wrote this business management parable about a manager who grows from sour and crusty to sweet and caring. Their book caught the corporate world’s imagination and gave life to a “kinder, gentler” management style. Today, as authoritarian management tactics continue to fade and collaborative, empathetic leadership proves increasingly productive, their five axioms merit revisiting. These principles call for being understanding, supportive, perceptive, honest and compassionate. The story may be a bit schmaltzy, and it draws to a predictable conclusion; yet, because it departs from typical leadership tales and because it has hardily weathered the test of time, getAbstract recommends it to managers who want to succeed as leaders by being both effective and empathetic.Was this review helpful?
