About the Author

After buying his own business in 1988, Glenn Shepard learnedthat managing a staff of three was harder than working for anational corporation with thousands of employees. He discoveredthat managers everywhere faced the same problems he was, and so hecreated the live seminar How to Manage Problem Employees in1998 (a book by that same title was published by John Wiley& Sons in August 2005). Within two years, it has become sopopular that it was selling out in each of the 25 states where hetaught it. Today, Glenn gives between 100 and 150 seminars peryear.
