Buckingham, Marcus & Curt Coffman. First, Break All the Rules.
Anyone who manages others (even yourself!) will gain from reading this book and putting into practice the concepts presented by the authors. Read and answer the 12 Questions that “measure the core elements needed to attract, focus, and keep the most talented employees” on page 28. Your own answers may cause you to decide to change where and how you work…and the answers that your employees give are truly a measure of your organization’s productivity. This book is the ‘prequel’ to the book I recommended yesterday, Now, Discover Your Strengths.
