By Pardo VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I wish I'd had this book when I first became a manager - I suspect that some of the people who worked for me wish I had as well. The title "inspirational" might sound a bit over the top but basically it's about being the sort of manager who gets the best out of his or her team. This is only management book I've read that seems to be based on the experiences of real managers - there are photos of them in the back of the book so they must be real people - and it shows, the stories sound real, not the usual two-dimensional stuff that passes for case studies in most books. The book is packed with useful ideas that have worked for other people in jobs just as difficult as yours or mine so they have to be worth a crack. One of its best features is the "action plan" at the end of each chapter that set you a list of tasks to achieve today, by the end of next week, next month and so on - they really help make the connection between what the book says and what you need to do yourself. This is one of the few management books that lives up to its marketing spiel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shame There Aren't 10 Stars 1 Aug 2007
By Andrew
Format:Paperback
I loved this book. It deals with the heart of management in a truly inspirational way, based on the successes of real people rather than dwelling on theory. The author has a lovely chatty style making it an easy read. Don't misunderstand me, the messages are both insightful and profound; they are just presented so that they are simple to understand. Each chapter ends with some specific actions, making it pragmatic as well as thought provoking. I have a copy on my desk which I know will become bruised and battered through constant use in the coming years.

As a someone aspiring to progress into mgt, this was a worthwhile read. It's a quick read and nothing earth shattering, but I read it in the build-up to interviews and it gave me worthwhile talking points.

It covers a good range of mgt situations with plenty of examples of individual approaches to difficult situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep on learning 13 Dec 2007
By Robert Selden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The title "Inspirational Manager" is interesting. Why? There's no "The" in front of "Inspirational Manager". It seems as though the author is personalising the book for each reader, i.e. it is possible that you and I can become an inspirational manager. This is unlike so many other books of this genre that exalt "the (often mythical) inspirational manager" in such terms that us mere mortals can not aspire to emulate.

Judith Leary-Joyce has many years of experience consulting with, training or coaching real managers and the basis for this book lies in the story of 12 such real managers. It is packed with great advice and tips for managers on all the important management responsibilities - recruiting, managing performance, delegating, team building and so on. Additionally it covers issues that are sometimes not covered in other management books, such as "Focusing your attention", "The beliefs of an inspirational manager" and "Keep on learning".

Inspirational manager has useful summaries at the end of each chapter plus an Action Plan for this particular topic that is neatly divided into "Today", "Next week" and "Next month". This makes it very easy to immediately implement an idea that you like. A highly recommended read for all managers.
