Managing Yourself Managing Others by Steven Darter is about how to be a more effective manager of people and yourself and how to create an environment that brings forth the “best” that people have to give.
For some people, the book will be about helping organizations to improve performance by tapping into the heart and soul of their employees. For others, it is a book about finding a place in this world where they can feel productive and alive?where what they do has meaning, satisfaction, and a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Others might take what is learned and apply it to family and loved ones. For all, this book is about understanding and using a motivational force, unique to each individual, which can lift one to enormous heights or sink them to despair if not understood and managed well.
Each person has giftedness, purpose, and an innate motivational drive, and when they uncover and use it, their life, for that moment, has a sense of congruence and fit. The more a person can operate in their motivational strike zone, which brings forth the energy and fire within, the more meaningful their life feels.
The practicality of this to organizations is that when an employee is in a role that taps into their motivational strike zone the more motivated, satisfied, and productive they will be. The more an organization is seeded (at all levels) with people who do their jobs with passion, the more effective it will be. The concepts and techniques described in this book, when applied, will help create such an organization.
In the course of helping the reader understand how to tap into the motivational strike zone and passion of their employees and, by doing so, how it positively impacts organizations, the book describes how one can discover their own motivational strike zone. If the reader makes this investment, he/she will become a more effective manager of others and themselves; and as a result they may find that their life will be more meaningful and their path to success easier to find.
