New Book Discusses World of a Successful Leader
People live in a YouTube world of sound bites and instant messaging, a world in which brevity, buzzwords, management-speak and pace are paramount and impact highly important. Internet, email, tablet and smartphone technology have fundamentally changed the way people access, learn from, and share information. In short, the communications revolution has arrived and the rules of the game for leaders and managers have changed. The days of having to wade through a 300-page business 'novel' or textbook to get, at most, two good ideas are over.
People don't have time to sit through two or three days of mind-numbing management or leadership development just to get to the 'golden nugget' on day 2 in the late afternoon and covered in less than three minutes on the day. This book is brief, practical and is not designed to be read from cover to cover. It is there for 'daily dipping'. A daily 60 second boost.
"Management Truths - 100 Ways to Whow! Your Organisation" is a collection of short, wry, though equally insightful thoughts and observations about leadership and management - a 100 in total. More of a coffee-machine than a coffee-table book, each observation stands alone and captures the essence of a particular theme in succinct, witty, and easily accessible way. It covers aspects of leadership and management including managing change, training and coaching, communication, managing performance, career, teams and personal style.
It is a light, fun way to improve leadership and management knowledge, skills and behavior. With its punchy sound bites, readers will have an easy way to learn to be more effective as a leader and manager.
