Book Title: It's Okay to be the Boss, The Step-By-Step Guide to Becoming the Manager Your Employees Need
Author: Bruce Tulgan
Year Published: 2007
Helpful to: Managers
Brief Review: Managing people is harder and more high-pressure today than ever before. There's no room for downtime, waste or inefficiency. You have to do more with less. And employees have become high maintenance. Not only are they more likely to disagree openly and push back, but they also won't work hard for vague promises of long term rewards. They look to you-their immediate boss-to help them get what they need and want at work.
Tulgan opens our eyes to the undisciplined workplace that is overwhelming managers and frustrating workers and invites bosses everywhere to accept the sacred responsibility of managing people. His message: It's okay to be the boss. Be a great one!
Reviewers Comments: This book has energized me to become a better manager. It addressed issues I have always had with one-on-one management and offered realistic solutions. Jessica Speas, CVPM
