    Useful Tool for Emerging Leaders!

    I am so impressed with this pocket mentor. Whether you are a leader/manager for the first time or established in your organization, this pocket mentor reminds us of the necessary approach as well as provides the tools to get us through! I am excited to recommend this book as a quick and easy read to bring us back to the basics of leading our people! Although it speaks to managing an established team, those who are strong contributors on a team would truly pick up tips that could lead them to a leadership position. The concepts concentrate in knowing your people. What a great read!
