Born from a chapter in The Professional Development Toolbox, this quick read is “Judo for the Manager’s Soul.”
In other words, it will help you to not only think out of the box, but to totally throw the box away and find new ways to get things done. It’s a fun quick read, one I’m sure you’ll enjoy.
Michael Langthorne and I have taken the metaphor of coaching instead of managing to the extreme. But the extreme may even then not be far enough. It has worked for sports coaches ever since the first team competition was waged. It works today as it did yesterday. And coaches are always learning, improving, and finding ways to do better. To communicate with, encourage, and develop their players.
As managers we propose you do no less.
