Steve Chandler and Scott Richardson offer a concise, practical approach to every day circumstances that we face as managers. What I found especially helpful were the references to 'managing agreements and not people', by encouraging others to commit to their agreements with you. 'People will break other peoples' rules. But people will keep their own agreements.' The book is broken up into short chapters each articulating a different point, similar to Jeffery Fox's 'How To Become A Rainmaker' book, where you can open the book anywhere in the middle and retrieve relevant morsels. The book is full of common-sense tips that beg to be reviewed periodically by managers, even experienced ones. I found myself thinking of a particular staff member or colleague for nearly every one of the 100 topics in the book as I read. I also found it useful to categorize most of the points in the book as they relate to implementation (i.e. to implement in meetings, one-on-one, written reviews, etc.). The book is a grouping of basic ideas that I found inspiring and, dare I say, somewhat motivating.

Authors Steve Chandler and Scott Richardson prove that sometimes the simplest ideas make the most sense. Residents of the corporate world will identify with their observations and, in most cases, will agree with their recommendations. The book moves along rapidly, is loaded with inspirational gems and may encourage leaders to rethink their managerial style. One curveball: if you have trouble relating to sports analogies, look out - this book is full of them. Despite this, the authors succinctly explain 100 straightforward nuggets of motivational advice in short chapters laced with pithy quotes. These techniques must be applied, not just conceptualized. As the authors warn skeptics, practice makes perfect. We believe that managers or executives interested in getting the best out of their employees - particularly by helping them feel self-motivated - would be wise to invest an evening with this book (and you¿ll find some dandy motivational quotes to use in your next meeting).
