HOW NOT TO MANAGE PEOPLE (Paper Back)
YOU PLAY IT COOL, LETTING YOUR TEAM TAKE HALF DAYS ON FRIDAY AND OVERLOOKING THE OCCASIONAL LATECOMER TO THE OFFICE. YOU STAND UP FOR YOUR PEOPLE AND MAKE SURE THEY KNOW YOU’RE THERE FOR THEM, BUT THEY STILL HATE WORKING FOR YOU. WHAT GIVES? WELL, YOU’RE CLEARLY SCREWING SOMETHING UP, AND IT’S TIME YOU FIND OUT WHAT IT IS.
It’s frustrating. You’ve put in the work and finally made it to the management team, and you haven’t stopped there. You show up first and leave last. You’re there every time one of your employees needs something. To any outsider looking in, you’re killing this management thing.
