Practical Ways to Lead an Innovative Organization: Modern Management Made Easy, Book 3

We hold many management myths as truth:

  • We have to treat everyone the same way,
  • We need to manage performance
  • 100% utilization works.

Each of these myths prevents people and teams from succeeding. In turn, these myths prevent the organization from finding the best customers who will create success in the marketplace.

In this book, you’ll learn to see how common—but ill-advised—management practices prevent people from doing their best job, as individuals and as part of groups and teams. And, you’ll learn what you can do instead.

Build your management excellence. Learn to build trust and respect with congruence, and practice management with integrity.
