Editorial Reviews

From the Author

You've probably observed that lots of CEOs practice "Management by Bestseller."  They hiccup from one hot business book to the next--leaving their loyal, but confused team members wondering where the target is.  So the foundational idea behind Mastering the Management Buckets is to think of leadership and management as a three-legged stool: Cause, Community and Corporation. The 20 buckets (core competencies) fit under one of those arenas--and wise leaders know that you need a balanced approach of all three legs. 

Why 20 buckets/core competencies? Leadership is complex; often chaotic.  We all grow weary of "five ways to do this" and "seven steps to XYZ."  Nonsense. Life is much more messy. That's why no one person can master all 20 core competencies, but a team can and should.  While the book is faith-based (I'm a follower of Jesus), it's not preachy. 

Enjoy your dip into the buckets.

From the Back Cover

In the most practical, humorous and fast-moving chapters you’ve ever read on business and non-profit leadership and management, this in-the-trenches management expert presents his 20 Management Buckets System for understanding and organizing your important mission. “When you don’t know what you don’t know,” says John Pearson (with 30 years of CEO experience), “the Law of Unintended Consequences will derail you every time.” Based on Pearson’s 48-hour Management Buckets Workshop Experience, Mastering the Management Buckets offers detailed implementation tools, including 99 practical takeaways that any leader can implement immediately, plus nine management breakthrough strategies. Learn how The People Bucket, The Donor Bucket, The Hoopla Bucket, The Customer Bucket and others can make or break your organization. For managers and leaders to use on their own, in weekly staff meetings, mentoring young leaders and managers and a host of other ways.
