The essential management survival toolwith all new data from more than 5,000 managers.
The sheer common sense in this classic resource is what every generation of managers is thirsting forand that's one key reason the book is a New York Times Business Bestseller a full ten years after its original publication. Drawing on new findings from 5,000 managers, Why Employees Don't Do What They're Supposed to Do is abundantly expanded to address such new workplace issues as flex time, retaining good employees, telecommuting, workplace stress, technology, the proliferation of service industries, increased use of temps, and violence in the workplace. The solid, down-to-earth, and easily accessible advice in this book makes it a true desk-side companion.
