    5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference & refresher guide 11 Dec 2007
    By Badg
    Format:Paperback
    After being on a 2 year career break from managing people this book has been really great in refreshing my memory on the basics of managing performance.

    I have recommended this book, and various others to friends and colleagues e.g How to Motivate your team, Coaching, Project Managing, Managing Change.

    If you have studied managing and / or just need a quick reference when you are faced with a situation have a look through the McGraw-Hill colleciton of lesson guides!

    I know mine never gather dust!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Managing Performance 30 Nov 2010
    By Pin
    Format:Paperback
    Another concise book in this series that is a great resource. Managers very often dont have the time (or inclination to manage performance) and this breaks down the steps so that people can take them on board and hopefully action them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars useful to an extent 21 Mar 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    A good guide to those whom performance is not directly their daily bread and butter issue. For those that have it as such; will need more for macro management issues like team or organisational performance, and the specific performance issues. That said; good for a strong foundation.
