Recognize This! –There are great resources on how to manage better. And now they’re all in one place.
Do you ever wish you could have an easy-to-hand resource of the best
management advice from the people you follow in blogs? I know I do. I
follow many excellent bloggers and have read and internalized sound
management advice over the last many years. Yet there are many times I
wish I could have quickly referenced the wisdom of these many others.
Now I can – and so can you. The American Society for Training and
Development has just issued a new book that does just this. Edited by Lisa Haneberg, The ASTD Management Development Book brings together the best authors in the space, including some of my personal favorites:
- Jeffrey Pfeffer
- Wally Bock
- Bret Simmons
- Tony Schwartz
- Kevin Eikenberry
- Steve Roesler
- CV Harquail
- David Zinger
The book is easy to navigate with sections on fundamental ideas,
culture building, teamwork, and management as a social act. Some of my
favorite chapters are:
- The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working: More and More, Less and Less
- Positively Using Your Power
- Who Says There’s No Crying in Leadership
- Are SMART Goals Dumb?
- Unmanaging the Network
The book is available in hardcover and eBook formats through the ASTD website.
I strongly encourage anyone with a desire to improve their management
skills (or the skills of others) to read the book … and not just because
my CEO Eric Mosley and I are featured in it, too.
You can hear some of this in action today on my webinar this afternoon with Katie Scott, compensation director at LSI. Register now!
