Managing People (Successful Manager)

 
9780006379331: Managing People (Successful Manager)

People are an organization's biggest asset, crucial in the most basic way to the organization's functioning. Yet few managers know how to get the most from the people who work for them. Using case studies to illustrate effective management, and including an action plan for continuous feedback and improvement, this book redefines the role of the manager. It shows how a successful manager can learn the skills and attitudes necessary for the effective management of people and so provide a more effective, long-term contribution to a business.

From the Back Cover:

People are an organisation’s greatest asset. Yet how many managers are sure they are getting the best out of their staff?

In the fast-changing, fiercely competitive environment of the 1990s, traditional methods of management, which focus primarily on administration and distribution of information, are no longer effective.
'Managing People' turns these practices literally upside down and introduces the concept of the manager as 'a provider of service of management to staff', who turn provide a service to customers or clients.

Explaining step-by-step how this widely adopted new method works, and sharing the experiences – and results – of manager who have used it, Vivien Whitaker shows how to achieve the changes in skills and attitude that are necessary to apply this up-to-date and effective style of management.
