Glenn Shepard is the Professor of Harsh Reality. He's provocative and tells it like it is in a humorous but chillingly serious fashion that cuts to the core of the issue in a way that no other management guru does. His style is not for everyone, especially those who think more positive thinking and a pat on the back are the solution to everything. But if you've been in the trenches of management and have experienced how miserable problem employees can make your life, this book will be your salvation.Was this review helpful?

We recommend this book to everyone who has employees: managers, supervisors or small business owners - especially if you are new to your position, are a first time manager or supervisor, have just hired your first employee or are about to do so. If the employees are running the ship at your company, it¿s time to take back control. Author Glenn Shepard tells you exactly how to do so in easy-to-implement logical steps. With this guide, even the most wishy-washy manager can become a model of strength, leadership and authority.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I went to one of Glenn's seminar's about one month after I was made a manager in my office. I have no management experience and was suddenly the boss of my former friends and coworkers. I learned some valuable information that day and have continued to learn from Glenn's emails and now from his books! I am so excited that this information is now available to EVERYONE!!! This is a no-nonsense, realistic way to handle people without letting them take control. I use his book as a guide in my office and keep it in sight so that my employees can see it!! It is like a dictionary for me and a great reference guide. It has made my transition much easier and I want MORE BOOKS that are this simple yet this informational and user friendly! I hope Glenn keeps writing and speaking!!! Sincerely, Nora Mary GilgallonWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

We(University of South Alabama)have hosted professional development workshops and seminars of all kinds over the years, even featuring the likes of Tom Peters, Ken Blanchard and Steven Covey. But I can honestly say that Glenn Shepard knows the most practical ways to help managers change unacceptable behaviors in their employees ...better than anyone I've ever met. He has received rave reviews for over 10 years from managers in large and small organizations. I teach business management to undergrad students and coordinate professional development for managers to help them improve employees'performance, so I see both sides of the workforce. From both sides....One thing is clear: Every manager should read this book!' Patricia Miles, University of South Alabama, Mobile, ALWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Every manager has 'problem employees', and this book gives specific ways to deal with common situations and personality types. A great reminder that we are MANAGERS- not parents, friends, therapists or babysitters to our employees. No 'management guru mumbo jumbo' in this book- just real life instances that will help you realize you are not alone! You will want to have your own copy and write in the margins.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
