Included here are key management skills and managerial challenges, with specific lists of tools guiding leaders along the way. In some cases, the author presents real-world examples and case studies. While the purpose of the book is to develop high-quality managers who can make a real difference in their organization, the small details are not overlooked. Chapters cover a variety of subjects, including goal setting, empowering employees, and hiring and firing employees. The author advises managers to see change as an opportunity, not as a challenge.
