People management can be the most rewarding and frustrating part of a leader's job. What aptitudes are valued most in managers and executives? Substantial research and a wealth of shared organizational experience demonstrate that it is a manager's "people skills" that truly make the difference.
In The 6 Habits of Highly Effective Bosses, co-authors Stephen E. Kohn and Vincent D. O'Connell present an easy-to-understand, sensibly presented review of six indispensable human-relations practices used by the bosses everyone admires and likes to work for the most.
With a combined 50 years of experience helping companies resolve "people problems" in the workplace, management coaches and leadership trainers Kohn and O'Connell guide managers through a sensible, incremental model of supervisory "people skills" development.
The 6 Habits of Highly Effective Bosses also provides a means for managers to coach themselves toward goals that they are encouraged to set for themselves, and the end result is not only knowledge gained, but also greater applied supervisory competency. By practicing the strategically conceived exercises, managers can apply the recommended skills to real workplace supervisory challenges.
For the busy manager seeking effective and timely results from leadership-development training, this book can become a springboard for solid professional growth and accelerated success in the development of all-important people-management skills.
