Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager, Gary Latham delivers a well-reasoned and highly practical approach to delivering superior results through more scientific management approaches. Having seen some of his ideas implemented in our organization and others, I can easily testify to their effectiveness. This book is a welcome respite from some of the more common psychobabble on the art of management and leadership." -- Donald Guloien, president and CEO, Manulife Financial

Dr. Latham writes with an incredible style. His ideas are easy to understand as well as his ability to put research into action. The book also conveys the message that it's time to use research-based methods that are hard to come across with just common sense. This book is a must for anyone or any company that wants to bring out the best from their people in the workplace as well as to impact the bottom-line.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on November 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
Leadership by instinct might work in some cases with naturally charming, supportive managers. However, techniques that work for such intuitive executives won't necessarily work for everyone else. In contrast, "evidence-based management" uses scientifically proven methods all managers can employ to help staff members reach their highest potential. At least that's the premise organizational psychologist Gary P. Latham puts forth in this extremely well-thought-out, superbly organized management methodology for hiring, training, motivating and evaluating employees. While his evidence-based processes are all sound managerial tactics, you'll see a strong resemblance to anecdotal approaches - only with better backing. getAbstract recommends this readable, practical handbook to anyone who manages other people.

The author takes effective leadership ideals and translates them into actionable steps to hire high-performers, execute strategy, and maintain a motivated, high-performing team through job satisfaction. A quick and engaging read that is well worth any busy exec's time.
