How to be a Good Manager and Supervisor

Genre: Non Fiction

Book Summary

Discover how to be a good manager – motivate inspire!

Do you know that much of what you’ve learned about management and supervising is wrong? Are you aware that many of the business books you've read and classes you've attended have little or nothing to do with real life? Do you realize that much of the training you've taken about how to be an effective supervisor of a team of people actually serves to slow projects down, fails to inspire, and produces more work for everyone?

Nothing taught in schools prepares anyone for real life on the job. In other words, experience is the best teacher.

Richard Lowe Jr, a leader at Trader Joe's for almost 20 years, and a Vice President of two consulting companies before that, explains the lessons he learned the hard way about how to motivate and manage a staff of highly trained technical people. This is not some dry theoretical manuscript; instead, it's based on successes and failures from the school of hard knocks.

If you’ve always wondered whether you’re doing things right – or if you’re frustrated that your team isn’t getting the best results, then this book is for you.
