Would you consider the audio edition of How to Not Suck as a Manager to be better than the print version?
I really liked the guys speaking voice...I mimick it, so that I can sound more like him when I talk to my employees at work. I like listening to it on the drive to work, because even though I already know these things, it's nice to hear a reminder...gets me in the right mindset.
What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Not Suck as a Manager?
I liked the part where he says managers who suck say they don't care about being friends with their employees...lol....because then he says he didn't SAY you need to be friends.yet, every time I meet managers who have problems, that's the first thing they say.haha.nice way to begin, I was hooked after that.
