People Skills for the First-time ManagerBook - 2006
In a fun, fast, accessible format--Manager Mechanics serves as both "mentor" and guide for newly minted managers who find themselves confronted with a wide-range of questions from how to hire and fire, to how to manage friends and balance budgets. Manager Mechanics comes to the rescue by giving first-timers the practical knowledge and political insights they need to perform successfully in their new management role, with a particular focus on people skills and good judgment. New and seasoned managers will gain techniques and proven approaches for leading their teams, hiring top talent, navigating company politics, avoiding career-limiting mistakes, and producing high-quality, well-planned results. The "Key Points" sections at the end of each chapter summarize the most critical skills and solidify the manager's fresh knowledge.
