have to be successful with people. More so than ever before, to be a good manager
you have to be a good coach - getting the best out of your staff. You won't
do the work for your team, but you know exactly how to help your people find
their personal best. Because from here on the soft stuff is the hard stuff.
No matter how good you are at your job, and no matter how great your products
or services are, unless you know how to get the best from your people, you might
as well go home. Make no mistake - this is about improving the bottom line.

Sydney, this book will help equip you with usable, effective, proven techniques

with increased confidence. Backed by sound, current psychological theory this
book is also highly practical and is packed with proven, empirically tested,
scientifically validated tools and techniques for enhancing your life experience
and work performance. Examining the challenges that the furious pace of change
in today's world have brought about, this text provides every manager with strategies
to facilitate a successful, dynamic and creative workforce. Backed by psychological
theory, the book is a highly practical read.
