Editorial Reviews

Review

You have now out done yourself. The Better People Leader is your best work yet. You have done a really terrific job with this work. My copy is all ready well marked and annotated. This is good, solid, useful stuff that most people never get. Thanks for the book and the work you are doing. (Jon Wampler, retired CEO Texas Dental Plans 2007-11-02)

From the Inside Flap

≈If only I could get better people, weˇd be more productive around here.² ≈I shouldnˇt have to hold their hands while they do their job.² ≈If only I wasnˇt burdened by the people I manage.²

Have you ever uttered these words? Have you ever wondered why you canˇt get your people to do what you want them to do? Have you ever felt powerless as a manager? The truth of the matter is, you have all kinds of power to get better people and to get people better. As a coach, you can have incredible talent on your team, but if you donˇt create an environment for success, your team will never be incredible. And without incredible teams, companies donˇt become incredible. They plod along at best, and falter at worst.

Written by founder of The Game of Work consulting company and author of the book The Game of Work Charles A. Coonradt, The Better People Leader holds the key to helping you inspire your team to greatness. This book teaches you to take the proactive and accountable approach to leadership, giving you the power to draw out your employeesˇ strengths, strengthen their weaknesses, and help them improve. As a better people leader, you have the power to coach your employees to greatness, to enable and ennoble them. In return, they will do all that you ask of them and more, and you will see personal, team, and company successes you cannot imagine today.

Charles A. Coonradt, acclaimed author, consultant, and speaker, founded his consulting company in 1973. Based on the phenomenal popularity of Coonradtˇs workshops, he wrote and published The Game of Work book shortly thereafter.

It has been updated and reprinted continuously since then. Coonradt is internationally recognized in the fields of goal setting and profit improvement on five continents and has authored three other management ≈must-reads²: Scorekeeping for Success, Managing the Obvious, and The Four Laws of Debt-Free Prosperity. He is a contributing author to the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, as well as a founding member and frequent lecturer at the School of Entrepreneurship, Brigham Young University, Marriott School of Management.

Lisa Ann Thomson has dealt with words for more than a decade as a writer, editor, and web content manager. She has written about a wide variety of subjects, from modern business to Mayan archeology and from international travel to local home construction. Working with the web, Lisa has been a product manager, content manager, information architect, and producer. She currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is a full-time writer and consultant.

Charles Coonradt hit a home run with The Better People Leader. It is an easy read and I highly recommend it for anyone in a leadership position. I coach and teach leaders on a regular basis. Chuck's book addresses the "soft skills" of leadership. It intorduces the fundamentals so often overlooked...any leader who will practice these fundamentals will become a dynamic, influential leader.

This book combines the many principles of leading people into one document. If you are a manager, parent, volunteer, member of a group, or just want to better understand the how's and why's of dealing with people, then you must read this book. Every person and organization will benefit from the concepts shared within these pages. I teach management throughout the world, and management begins with understanding people. My hat is tipped to author Chuck Coonradt - he hit the home run!

By Kevin on November 27, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Of all the management tomes available in the marketplace, The Better People Leader sits next to The Game of Work, Good to Great, and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Perhaps more than any other business author, Chuck Coodradt understands how to convincly communicate the need to focus on RESULTS and provides the step-by-step plan every reader craves. Importantly, Chuck has been preaching the gospel of results and leadership for over a quarter of a century...and has never varied from the same basic (and learnable) management principles over that period.

Chuck has played a large part in my business success over the years. He has supplied valuable training and information which, when applied, was part of the catalyst for success in my business career. I have purchased and shared his new book "The Better People Leader" with dozens of business leaders. A special thanks to Chuck for sharing his talent and gift of teaching in this new book.

Chuck Coonradt has done it again. I have read his other works (The Game of Work, Managing the Obvious, Scorkeeping for Results)and this is the best yet. Not only does Chuck share his common sense wisdom about leading people, but his approach to leading people WORKS! I have implemented his Game of Work program and experienced the results first hand!
