Product Description

Review

""The One Thing You Need to Know" is actually a modest title. It contains many things you need to know. Marcus Buckingham is flat out the most original, provocative writer there is on the subjects of leadership and management. He comes to his theories the old-fashioned way: by truly getting to know the people and the workplaces he writes about. He also happens to be a wonderful writer and a joy to read." -- Tony Schwartz, coauthor of "The Power of Full Engagement;" president, The Energy Project

About the Author

Marcus Buckingham is the co-author of the best-selling books FIRST, BREAK ALL THE RULES and NOW, DISCOVER YOUR STRENGTHS. He is a renowned speaker and regular guest on American television. He lives in Los Angeles but was born in England and is a graduate of Cambridge University.

Format: Hardcover
Marcus Buckingham, co-author of First, Break All the Rules:What the World's Best Managers Do Differently and Now, Discover Your Strengths, two of my favoured books, is crystallizing even more in this new book the essentials of great managing and leading.
No models, no black belts, just simple examples from happy marriages to amazing partnerships of Bill Gates, the right partner at the right time and Bill Gates is a genius in finding the right partners. So what is the secret great managers and leaders should know?
In his easy style Marcus Buckingham takes us from the vital distinction between managing and leading to the basics of good managing. The author doesn't repeat himself in this new book but provides additional reflections on the three levers: strengths and weaknesses, triggers for a person and the person's unique style of learning. Sustained Individual Success is again a very well written part with examples of twenty percenters, those few individuals, who manage to experience extraordinary, repeated and sustained success. I bought already 8 copies of this new book for friends, moreover some 35 times Now, Discover Your Strengths and some 30 times First, Break All the Rules. They form a nice and useful set for those professionals who want to be great, not just good.

Format: Paperback
An ambitious attempt at boiling down the main rule which can bring success in:

*Managing
*Leading
*Sustained personal success

Marcus Buckingham has used case studies and interviews of the most successful people in each of these areas. He also sets out how you can look to use these rules in your work and life.

Full of interesting examples, you'll be able to see how you can use the techniques to take you to a new level.

This book will be of particular interest to people who lead teams or oversee the work of others, but it is not limited to these situations. Most useful in a business context.

I am very grateful to this book - it has helped me clarify what I do (and don't do) in my working life and beyond. It is well researched and easy to read and the kind of book that you want to share with others. And the insights that it brings to understanding how to manage other people and yourself successfully are true, important and actionable.
