The Manager's Diary
Thinking outside the Cubicle
Practical, entertaining, and actionable to make you a better Supervisor and Manager. That is the purpose of The Manager's Diary. After making a few too many mistakes for the second (and often third or fourth) time, and after passing off bits of wisdom more regularly to my staff, I decided to start writing down what I was learning on the job day in and day out. Eventually, as the list got longer and longer a blog of the choicest thoughts and lessons was formed. This book contains the best of the best from observations based on the real world experience of a manager. Each chapter has been reworked from its original form to include more content and an assignment at the end of each to put these principles into practice. In addition, exclusive chapters found only in this book will add to your management toolbelt.
