The way you choose to interact with your employees is a critical influence on your success as a manager, as well as determining the quality of your employees’ work and the tone of your office.

Drawing on years of management expertise, it will enable you to bring out the best in your employees.

Mastering Management Styles looks at the various components of management style and shows you how to combine them in the way that best suits each type of situation you’ll face. When should you be consultative with your employees? When should you be directive? How much coaching should you offer them, and how should you do it? How do you balance the interests of your employer with those of your employees? How do you distinguish between different types of employee? All of these topics are covered in this practical instruction manual for managers, providing you with a go-to set of analytical tools and hands-on strategies that will make you a much more effective and successful manager.


Through insider advice, handy tips and real-life case studies, you’ll be quickly on your way to management success.
