Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Book is high on feel-good, cheap phrases (Don't light a fire under your employee when you can build a fire within them) and low on methodology, practical application, or behavioral analysis. Avoid this book.
I thought the book was great because it gave me proven ideas, ways to empower employees, and ways to handle certain situations. It is a book I recommend to any new team leader or manager.
Managing for Dummies is one of those rare books that can be used both as a how-to and a as a reference. It's full of handy information about a wealth of management topics, from motivation to termination. Managing for Dummies uses a clear, no-nonsense approach to explain how to handle most any management situation.
