Publisher's Summary

YOU'RE THE BOSS.... NOW WHAT! GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH THESE 3 INDISPENSIBLE GUIDES.
One of the biggest challenges for new managers is how to get the best out of each of their team members so they achieve superior results - and make you, the new manager, look good! In Bare Knuckle People Management authors Sean O'Neil and John Kulisek cut through the crap to show managers how to push their teams to success, not by following fluffy leadership training but by using the skills that got them promoted in the first place.
What could be better than getting anyone to do anything in seven minutes...or less? Finally, a revolutionary new approach scientifically proven to create instant, effective, and lasting change in anyone - coworkers, friends, family, strangers, even yourself. With six simple questions, motivational specialist Dr. Michael V. Pantalon teaches you how to plant the seeds for change, help others discover their own powerful reasons for change, identify effective "change talk," make an action plan, and create successful outcomes even with people who are resistant to change.
You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight. Many managers never complete the journey. At best, they just learn to get by. At worst, they become terrible bosses. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.

Sleep inducing drivel

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The content of this book is written for 3 year olds, the narration is dull and always sets my mind wandering off in other directions or sends me straight to sleep. No useful constructive information, just mildly amusing anecdotes about different personality traits.


What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Be more constructive and less waffle.

Yes, the voice induced sleep almost instantly.


What character would you cut from You're the Boss?

All of them
