With my practice I have had the opportunity to work with some outstanding managers and with some managers that need improvement. I have also assisted companies and divisions with strategic planning and developing managers. Given over 25 years of managerial experience at every level of management and having taught management training over an 11 year period I discussed this with my publisher.
I saw a need to help those that want to be managers, new front line managers and experienced manages that want to be outstanding. As a result of that discussion I contacted the 50 best places to work in America in 2013. With feedback from 30 of these firms and my experience I wrote The Servant Manager: 203 tips from the best places to work in America (November 2013).
Now I am prepared to help you and your firm. The sixteen chapters in this book are an excellent source of information that offers the best practices for managers and covers their the most common concerns.
