Read on October 16, 2011

I was asked to read it by my employers.

On the one hand, it reinforces ideas which should not be alien to anyone who's ever been managed by, or watched, a good manager in action. Be clear, and concise with your goals for your staff. Tell them immediately when they're doing something right or wrong. Praise them, but object to their actions, etc.

I felt it was silly, and there were an awful lot of "plaques" in what was supposedly a very "bare" office.

Regardless, it can sometimes be nice to have common sense reinforced, to read something which says "you were right."

So, it's got that working for it.

Would I read it again? No. Would I suggest it to someone? Maybe. Depending on what they were looking for.

Still, I don't feel like the 20 minutes or so I spent reading it were wasted, and that's something.
