Overview

I believe we're not born knowing how to manage or lead people effectively. It's a learned behavior. We all start out making certain assumptions based on our past experiences and perceptions as to the kind of role we think managers and leaders should play. But we also know from experience that our perceptions are not always correct. Today's managers and leaders need to change the way they manage others to stay in step with a changing workforce. "The Top Ten Sins Most Managers Make & How to Avoid Them" are woven into the ten chapters of this book. Each chapter is dedicated to one of those sins. And trust me - in my 40+ year career as an award winning entrepreneur and general manager for a major corporation - I've committed each one of these sins at one time or another. If you want to learn how to communicate and interact more effectively, manage your time, cope with stress and deal with difficult people and challenging situations better, then this book is for you. There is no question that if I knew then - what I know now - I would have managed differently. After reading this book you will manage and lead differently too.
