Overview

About the Product

Who really knows how to get the most from a workforce: the manager or the employees? Each has a different approach to effective management what really motivates employees to go the extra mile. Each approaches management issues from a different angle – a different perspective – and without understanding both points of view, the picture is never fully complete. Perspectives on Managing Employees is the first book to offer both sides of the story. In an easy-to-read, question/answer format, Michael A. Fina provides the manager's perspective while a host of real employees gives the workforce point of view on topics including interviews and the first few days on the job, building and improving the relationship, the importance and best methods of celebrating, managing through problems and issues and a whole lot more. What makes this book different from other management books is that there is no author collaboration or sharing of information during the writing process. None of the authors were aware of what the others were writing. The result is a fascinating, no-holds-barred look at effective management as both the manager and employees see it, leaving readers with a list of action items and a better understanding of core management concepts to dramatically improve production and results.
