Simple, practical and to the point. Truly a toolkit in support of managers in development. A great tool as well for HR Business Partners in support of managers.

Probably the most practical and easiest to read textbook I've been required to read. Each chapter is relevant, short, and to the point.

Recommends it for: new managers
I am re-reading this book after having skimmed it during a 'first-time manager's seminar" I attended late last year. Very practical knowledge about dealing with the day-to-day interactions between superiors and their subordinates. A very easy read and I recommend to anyone that is new at being a manager.
