This ebook offers a summary of “FIRST, BREAK ALL THE RULES”, by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman.
Managing employees productively is exceptionally hard to achieve. It takes a deft touch to be able to balance all the competing interests: the company's, the customer's, the employee's and the manager's own interests to name just a few. Yet some managers consistently do just that, while others flounder and fail.
Over a 25year period, the Gallup Organization surveyed employees and managers to try and identify the patterns of success great managers' use. In fact, there emerged four keys that great managers use to draw exceptional performance from those they are responsible for. If these keys to unlocking worldclass performance work for the great managers, it makes sense for everyone interested in producing similar results to study these keys and implement them in the context of their own business requirements.
