Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814405177, Hardcover)
"Dozens of humor-filled, down-home ""management maxims"" that help managers do their job better.
When it comes to managing people, author Frank McNair has seen first-hand what works and what doesn't. In this breezy book, readers get a refreshing dose of real-world advice in what McNair calls 'maxims for smart managers.""
His sage and witty suggestions include:
""Don't send your ducks to eagle school!""
""Pay off in currency that matters to the employee.""
""Don't confuse motion with progress.""
""Ignoring poor performance is the same as applauding it.""
Covering the whole gamut of people-management skills, the author presents maxims on: planning * motivation * expectations * teaching and coaching * measuring performance * rewards and consequences * relationship management, self-management * leadership.
Each maxim is illustrated by a real-life story and pithy, practical insights that managers can put to instant use or store away for future situations."
