    Management Malpractice: How to Cure Unhealthy Management Practices that Disable Your Organization

    This book made me think hard about my own organization. Some of the management principles Hickman highlights are preached but not practiced in my organization...and this hypocrisy has led to disillusionment in my staff and customers. Hypocrisy is what's killing many of today's businesses! Hickman is right on target.

    A Battle Cry for Action

    Finally a book that not only sees a problem and points it out, but also gives every employer/employee a path to change. Everyone should read this book and then take action. Hickman makes us believe that change is possible.

    Every Executive Needs this Book

    Once in awhile a book comes along that hits the nail on the head. This book does exactly that. It exposes a major problem in most organizations and shows you how to deal with it, no matter where you are in the organization. Half the people I work with are dissatisfied with their jobs and their bosses. Now I know why. Hickman's book makes it clear why management malpractice happens in organizations and what to do about it. It's easy to read and extremely helpful. I'm already a better manager because of it. Every executive in America should read this book!

    Management Malpractice: How to Cure Unhealthy Management Practices that Disable Your Organization

    This book is really incredible. We usually associate the idea of malpractice with the medical profession, but malpractice can exist in any profession or organization...and it does. Management malpractice is rampant, Hickman suggests. And I think he's right. We just don't see it or think of it in those terms, Hickman argues, because we are so used to it. We are used to being demeaned, abused, and bullied at our jobs by our managers. Hickman is obviously fed up with the current corporate culture (as am I), and means to do something about it with this book. It is a great read, with real solutions/suggestions for people in organizations everywhere.
