Zapp Jan 2, 2008
Not the issue I thought when ordered but still useful for general message of the ZAPP theroy
love to read Aug 25, 2007
I used this in training sessions with my managers. Great book and worth reviewing/re-reading from time to time.
Easy Lessons Equal Coachable Moments Feb 24, 2007
The reason I like this book is that it breaks many management and supervisory roles into very simple actions that create perfect coaching goals. As a Leadership Coach I am able to use samples of this book to assist in drawing a picture of the behaviours that we want our managers and supervisors to perform; (Much more fun than our current list of competencies.) The book is not quite as strong when discussing organizational change but it does demonstrate that all organizational change must start at the base of the organization with support from the Top. A simple read with great messages.
One of the Top Little Business Books with Big Impact according to About: Human Resoures Jan 31, 2007
According to Susan Heathfield, editor of About: Human Resources, Your Guide to Human Resources Newsletter: This continuing favorite may be hard to find but it's worth the search. Join a supervisor who is transported to a state in which he can suddenly "see" the real impact his actions have on whether staff is enabled to think, contribute, and find meaning in work. Experiment and learn with him as he changes.
Perfect for new managers & supervisors Jan 11, 2007
This quick read brings valuable insight for new managers in a fun manner. The author's use of corporate characters and the personas employees take on are right-on for many typical business scenarios. If you are looking to improve employee satisfaction and grow as a manager, this book may provide insight and spur ideas of your own to implement.
It's highly recommended for clients of Battson Coaching who are first-time managers.
