More About the Author

I feel most productive when I catalyze breakthroughs - one-on-one, with leadership teams, and through my writing. My professional career has been devoted to enabling development and success through leadership and internal consulting roles, an individual consulting business and my current position as an OD Practitioner with a world-class health care organization.

I am an expert (and lifelong student) in the areas of organization development, management, leadership, talent management, and personal and organizational success. I have over 25 years experience providing departmental leadership, consulting, training and coaching solutions for manufacturing, health care, high technology, government, and nonprofit organizations. I have written 14 business books and speak on a broad range of topics of interest to leaders and managers.

Over the years I have enjoyed working for companies both large and small, including Black & Decker, Intel, Mead Paper, Amazon.com, Cruise West, Beacon Hotel Corp., and TGI Fridays. Recent consulting clients include GE Aviation, Corbis, MedCentral, MTD Products, Perfetti Van Melle, the Federal Aviation Administration, the City of Seattle and the Royal Thai Government.

I enjoy select opportunities to speak in the US and abroad and have experience working with leaders in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Jamaica, Bhutan, The UK, Brazil, Turkey, and Canada.

Lisa Haneberg is one of the best management authors there is when it comes to writing short, practical, helpful books. 10 Steps to be a Successful Manager is one of them.

Management is not about easy or universal answers. It is about intelligent choices that lead to action. So, the way to judge almost any management book is to ask: "Will this book help me?"

This book will help you if you are a new manager, trying to find your sea legs in a world that's very different from being an individual contributor. It will also help you if you're a seasoned manager, looking for ways to improve your performance.

Like most writers on the subject, Lisa has her own way of defining the distinction between leadership and management. She says that everyone who's responsible for the performance of a group will do both leadership things and management things. Here's a quote.

"Management is a set of methods and practices - a regimen - that enables us to run a business or a piece of a business. It's a job. Leadership is not a job; it's the way we do the job."

That quote tells you how she approaches management. It's a set of methods and practices. She lists ten that are important steps to management success.

Clarify, negotiate and commit to your role.
Understand your expected results.
Know your piece of the business.
Build a great team.
Choose employees wisely.
Define and model excellence.
Plan the work and work the plan - flexibly
Obliterate barriers.
Proactively manage change and transition.
Leave a legacy of capacity to produce.

Lisa suggests that you do the first two steps in order, then skip around as much as you want.

Format: Paperback
Ten Steps to Be a Successful Manager is a highly practical guide for anyone who wants to excel in their role of manager. Packed with practical advice and written in a clear, engaging style, Haneberg outlines an action plan for success.

Here are some of the features that make this book valuable:
::Tools. Many chapters have a "Tool" section. These range from a list of questions you can use to discover and clarify what's expected of you to ways to spark collaboration by your reports.
::Pointers. These handy sidebars are sprinkled throughout the book and flag information you need to know.
::Worksheets. Lisa provides lots of handy worksheets to help you tackle everything from planning your week to determining which metrics to measure. As an aside, in Worksheet 3.1, the very first question is one that every manager should ask to prevent employee disengagement!
::Tune Up. Every chapter ends with a section called "Tune up and Realign." This summary reminds the reader to focus on what's most important to implement each step effectively.

All in all, this is a great, well written book. Lisa has a wonderful style which speaks with authority without being preachy. She comes across as a mentor who wants to see you succeed and knows exactly how to help you go about doing that. Highly recommended.

I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I am with the Kindle Edition of this book I recieved. This is the MOST I have ever spent on a kindle book, and only did so because it is something that is required for my job. It is nearly unreadable. There are pages missing, out of order, and actually doubled. For instance the first few pages you can see a "ghost" of text behind, with the table of contents and other material printed in white over top. I thought perhaps it was a bad download, but now have removed from my device, and re-downloaded, and tried on at least 2 other readers (Kindle for PC and iPad). Before you purchase this book, be sure you're ready to struggle through trying to make sense of it. I would return it, but have to read it at this point. Amazon - get this fixed!
