    Highly Recommended!

    You can learn how to handle problem employees three ways: figure it out for yourself, get a great mentor or read this book. Designed primarily for managers rather than human resources professionals, it¿s a handy guide to different problem personalities. Author Marilyn Pincus provides several alternative solutions for how to counter each type¿s negative influence on your organization. Her clear writing and thoughtful organization make the book even more useful. While author Pincus doesn¿t provide detailed advice on the legal and procedures aspects of employment, she does tell you when the ice is getting thin enough to seek the advice of professionals. We strongly prescribe her book to help bring managerial blood pressure readings back into the normal range.
