About the Book
Becoming a Successful Manager has all the tools and techniques for
making a smooth transition into the role of manager. Drawing on
both academic research and real-world experience, the authors teach
readers how to apply what they call "The Discovery
Method." Through practical exercises and thought-provoking
questions, readers learn how to manage others as successfully as
they have managed themselves. Updates include such timely topics as
the evolving roles of managers, managing up, and other changes
brought on by technology, new generational influences, and changes
in overall corporate culture and expectations.
