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.

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.
