Format: Paperback
What was great about this book was the practical, down-to-earth approach of the authors on how to transform your own management style from one style to one of mentorship. I know that management is not something that everyone is good at, and there have been times when I myself have struggled with this, but I will say that this book gives some great advice on how to be a stronger manager that anyone can take in, process and utilize in short order. I know that for me I am already using some of the concepts and am seeing immediate results. I highly recommend this to anyone who manages today, it will change your outlook on management!

The authors create the case for being a hands off manager. They offer concrete suggestions for managers to empower and enable their employees to perform at the highest level. The authors look at the negative impact that micro managing has on the effectiveness and the moral of employees in an organization. They also talk about how coaching employees is more effective than criticism or corrective action in changing employee behavior. I found the book to be full of practical and innovative ideas. I recommend that you read it and more importantly use the ideas!

This is one of the most helpful books I've read. It doesn't tell you "how to manage" as much as it suggests a way to view the role that will naturally make you more effective. The only thing I don't like about this book is the title, because you don't need to be a manager to benefit from it. My company adopted it as our quarterly book club book, and I've bought a copy for all my new employees--it's that good.

Chandler's discussion of listening from "a neutral place" is invaluable for anyone who deals with people (and who doesn't?) Almost everyone has been frustrated by someone who has already made up their mind, and nothing you say will make a difference. This book showed me how to recognize how frequently people do this without knowing it (myself included). Not only does returning to "the neutral place" make me a better listener, the concept is one my teams now use when interacting w/each other. It's made us better listeners, reduced frustration and ultimately resulted in better decisions.

The approach Chandler advocates for "managing" people is intuitive, but not necessarily easy at first. Many readers won't find these concepts to be new. Unlike other books I've read, this one is different because it provides helpful, actionable suggestions to replace old thought habits with new ones that will make you, and those around you, happier and more productive. Importantly, this isn't a book about making everyone happy. Some people simply won't be, because the job is a bad fit or they're just happier being unhappy. By practicing the habits Chandler shares in this book (including respectful, candid communication in difficult circumstances), you'll help "non-performers" perform, whiners whine less and find the chronically unhappy more likely to choose to go elsewhere. And in those rare instances where the best decision really is dismissal, this book makes it easier to sleep at night. At least it did for me.

More than a business book! This is a great manual for living a successful life!

I've read a number of Steve Chandler's books over the years and have never been disappointed. I had this one on my radar for years - but never picked it up until I got a recommendation to read it - FROM THE AUTHOR! (Yep, that's right... Steve himself said, "this is a book you should read." And, WOW... All along I was thinking "business book" - but now that I've highlighted every third page I have come to see it as a beautiful set of life lessons.

Read it Now. Read it Now. Read it Now. That's what W.Clement Stone would have said.
