Very insightful and concise. Real food for thought. As a first time manager, a real tool that provides reflection and advice to go forward and promote team and individual growth. Yes, I would recommend.
This book is different from the run of the mill management books. It concentrates on the 'soft' skills that if employed will achieve the same results as the 'stick' but are preferable because the end result is a happier team. I used it to help me with my Level 3 Leadership and Management course. Useful.
