Format: Paperback
If you are a new manager, aspire to a managerial position or recently promoted an employee to a managerial or supervisory position, we suggest this manual as required reading. In fact, every new manager should be given a copy of the book along with the promotion. Too often great employees are promoted without any concept of the new skill set required to succeed as a manager or supervisor. This handbook clearly identifies the new competencies needed and explains how to develop or acquire them. Author Morey Stettner also pinpoints many of the common mistakes new managers make - and tells you how to avoid them. Anyone studying business management in college also should read this book, since it provides good, practical "in the trenches" advice that's hard to find in textbooks.

Why couldn't all advice books be like this one? At only around 50 pages in length, this could be considered more of a pamphlet than a book, but the advice is solid and very helpful. The author has clearly boiled down the essentials of being a good manager without padding it out endlessly (as so many authors do). One of the better advice guides I've come across aimed at new managers.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Robert Selden on 16 Sep 2009
Format: Paperback
I liked this book. It's succinct, to the point and can be read in just a couple of hours (max). What's more, the messages are spot on!

Each chapter has only three pages (that's unique) and concludes with three tips for implementing the idea or topic. It's well written and covers the majority of things a new manager should consider.

I very much like the starting point of the book "Give Feedback". And Stettner is talking about giving praise, not criticism (giving criticism only comes toward the end of the book). This is a great way for a new manager to set a positive example to the people he or she is going to manage. The second chapter is about "How to make the best of bad news), something that the new manager is most likely to encounter very early in the new role. The book topics flow nicely from there, including some great tips on how to impress your boss.

If you are looking for a short, introductory book on the topic of management, or perhaps as a gift for someone who has just been promoted, this book would be ideal. For the serious student of management, it would go well as a primer to be followed by a more detailed book later.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By G. Fraser on 5 Mar 2010
Format: Paperback
Having been dismayed by the 'Making Teams Work' book in the same series, I was apprehensive about this book but was pleasantly surprised by it.

The handbook provides concise and pertinent guidance that most managers, not just new ones, will find useful. It keeps a firm focus on helping employees to better themselves which is, after all, what a good manager should strive for.

As a manager myself I gained new knowledge from this book and would recommend it to other managers who want to improve their skills for the benefit of their staff.
