4.0 out of 5 stars Basic career-building and team-building guide 16 Jan 2008
By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This basic book drills readers with a fundamental message: Good leaders follow specific plans and put their subordinates first. The authors furnish specific tactics you can use to become a disciplined leader, ready and able to produce a top team. George Bradt, Jayme A. Check and Jorge Pedraza split their material evenly among tips on being a good leader, case studies and printed planning sheets to use to set up your first 100 days on the job. The information is easy to skim; but the authors make some important points, including why you should start meeting key people in the company before you begin working in your new position. We recommend this basic career-building and team-building guide for every new manager's orientation kit. It's a small price to pay to survive and thrive in your new job.
