And my favorite subject, conflict is seen as a relationship issue. Which it is. So, putting the people who have the problem together in a room to work it out. Yes to that! And even better is the wisdom to meet with them the next day to make sure the new ways of talking took. Like a vaccination you have to check to make sure it is effective.
As I read I decided it would be great to be an employee working under Mr. Gooch's tutelage. I also thought a great life would be to on the ranch with the rest of the cattle.
Great job and valuable insights with the spice of humor.
Sylvia Lafair author "Don't Bring It to Work: Breaking the Family Patterns that Limit Success".
I received Wingtips with Spurs a few days ago and have to admit it's one of the most enjoyable, refreshing, down to earth books on people management I have ever read. It's a virtual encyclopedia of information on a host of issues that we have all dealt with not only in the business world but everyday life as well. It blends wit and humor (Cowboy Wisdom) into real life situations that keeps you turning the pages.
The author has an uncanny knack for getting to the core of an issue and then providing his own unique insight from his experiences professionally and from life on the ranch. You may not agree with everything the author has to say regarding a particular subject but I will wager you will thoroughly enjoy your journey through this book. I certainly did.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone who manages people at any level of an organization but it would be on my list as a must read for anyone new or just getting started in management. If you're an HR Director, you should buy copies for your management team. You will not be disappointed.
