Toss Those Conventional Rules in The Trash Heap

Buckingham & Coffman, using reams of data & scores of interviews with identified "successful managers" paint a very different picture of what a great manager looks like. As an individual who has been in managing positions for over 30 years I felt like I was reading about what I already knew. Should you treat employees differently? Of course. Are all aspects of management equally important? Poppycock! As a manager, who should you spend more time with - your recognized stars, or those guys & gals that need a little more help? Without answering that question, I recommend that you read the book. You might be surprised.
