Book Description

3 Feb 2004
Economic uncertainty. Employee loyalty. Power struggles. Conflict resolution. Tony Soprano has to deal with leadership problems just like any CEO. Aside from "whacking" people (a definite no-no in most corporate environments), his strategies and tactics can work for you. He’s direct, he’s fast… and he’s successful. Learn what makes him such an effective leader in this offbeat management guide, including advice you can you use on: - Busting Balls and Building Teams - Behind the Bada Bing: Making Decisions - Sit Downs, Stand-Ups and Other Meetings - What Carmela Knows: Managing Up - And more…

With case studies, worksheets, tips on managing up and delegating—and a special chapter on what Tony does wrong—this is a business book like none you’ve ever read. Use it to gain insight—and find street-smart ways to manage your own workplace family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Breed of Leadership Book 6 Feb 2004
By A Customer
For a new and much needed new breed of leader. This book is not about whacking people and how to intimidate. It focuses more on a new breed of leader who builds stronger teams, who doesn't engender competition but creates an atmosphre of loyalty and cooperation... and then pushes employees and coworkers to work better.
And it's really well written, with great examples from business leaders around the globe as well as great worksheets so you can start putting it together.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Remarkable Business Book 4 May 2004
By A Customer
This is a remarkable book. It's smart, fun to read, very up to date in terms of case studies, methods and examples from the corporate and not-for-profit worlds, both in the US and abroad.
I'm an old manager, stuffy and jaded. Someone recommended this book, and I didn't think I'd like it. I don't like many biz books. But this one is a winner. It's not just for managers -- entrepreneurs, freelancers, board members, this book is for you.
My favorite chapter is on vision. Another favorite deals with time-saving, decision making and delegating. I try and try to get better at those things, and usually books don't help. But so far, this one is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and inspiring 26 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well i guess few of us considered the management aspect of Tony Soprano
But this essay written by Scheider points out excellent lessons taught by our famous tv mafioso
Management is the art of managing
Keeping in mind that Soprano came up to 6 full seasons, i believe that he shoud be considered a capable manager
A usefull and entertaining book

I bought this book on a whim and loved it. Yes, it is written for fans of the series, but the insights are real and valuable, and the nmetaphors, though a little forced at times, largely worked. No, its readers won't be running a crime family, but yes, the writers of The Sopranos really did hit on some valuable lessons for managers, which Schneider has extracted and sytematised nicely. A book I wish I'd written!
