This book focuses on personal development as a leader in the areas of managing teams, leading others, achieving high performance, communicating effectively, presenting, and negotiating. Content includes visual statistics and short quick readings of information. A great resource for new leaders and a refresher for seasoned leaders.
Simple layout style makes this book easy to dip into and out of. Some useful information which we've used for our CMI leadership level three diploma research. The book consists of several books from the same series, so you won't need any of the others if you purchase this one. The book is hardback and is shorter than I expected.
Easy to flick through because there aren't too many words per page. Some of the graphics were poorly designed; they just filled the space and looked colourful. There wasn't much overlap between sections, so it appeared existing material had been thrown together without planning or integration. References weren't provided for any of the statistics, and there was no mention of negotiation. I found the section about negotiating most useful.
A very useful book if you're just starting out in management, or if you've been managing for a while and need a quick refresh. It's also great for those who work in small companies where they might not have any training or guidelines. It's very visual and easy to understand, so it's perfect for people who aren't familiar with management theory.
