'The Un-Bossy Boss' is Released
SYLVANIA, OH(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Root Inc., the strategy execution consulting company, today announced the launch of the new business book The Un-Bossy Boss: 12 Powerful Questions to Make You a Great Manager. Authored by Gary Magenta, senior vice president at Root, it helps develop strong managers to build highly productive, engaged, and results-driven teams. The book combines Magenta's passion for leader and manager coaching with more than 15 years of experience consulting with Fortune 500 clients to create better strategy execution by focusing on their people.
"I had never given this concept much thought until I encountered my first manager, and my experience was not good; there was no interest in my career, my growth, or in trying to connect with me," said Magenta. "Managers have the most influential role in the business because they are most responsible for the success or failure of an organization not the leadership team. Despite how critical managers are to business success, they remain the most under-invested segment. This book is essential to better enable managers to produce optimal business results through their teams and every individual that reports to them."
Leaders and managers alike will benefit from the real-world advice found in "The Un-Bossy Boss" because as good managers evolve into great ones, their employees deliver better results, care more about their jobs, and feel more connected to the bigger picture all of which contribute directly to a company's success.
About "The Un-Bossy Boss"
When an individual contributor succeeds in their role, they are typically promoted to manager and suddenly in charge of other people with limited to no training on how to be a good manager. With a lack of understanding and ability to effectively engage their employees, they follow the old school approach deciding what must be done, then telling employees what to do and how to do it, and occasionally checking on them.
Through humor and real-life case studies, "The Un-Bossy Boss" shows how this old model of managing the "yell and tell" method has become outdated and ineffective. Magenta offers readers a map to success that involves a more interactive relationship between manager and employee, one that reveals motivations and beliefs of workers, and invites them to create solutions.
