Being a manager is a job; it takes work. Being an incredible manager, however, is a choice. It requires focusing on “this”—establishing employee expectations, setting goals, giving recognition and feedback, and delegating as a means to develop your team, and not “that”—whatever you did yesterday. But where can busy managers find the time in their already busy schedules to do these things? 

Help is here in this title from master of productivity & learning Kimberly Devlin. In one-hour, managers will learn where to start, what to do, and how to follow through to engage their employees, manage performance, and get results.
