In the end, the goal is to help employees make the most of the talent that is already there and make sure they are in a job that best uses those talents. It’s only by knowing their employees this well that great managers are able to choose the right ways to develop them. The fact that each person has his or her unique and unchangeable set of behaviors means that, for managers, this must be translated into management guidelines. They polled 80,000 managers at 400 different companies to discover what sets the truly great apart from the rest. This is much more efficient because it keeps you from having to create a training plan that you must enforce.

and what this book taught me was that your 'talent' could be that you hate waking up in the morning lol (I'm very talented at this) and a managers job is to align talent with career aspirations. First, break all rules" wraz z "The Effective Manager" tworzą bardzo dobry tandem i szybki kurs jak powinno się kierować ludźmi. Their description of “conventional wisdom” (which they do quite correctly proceed to debunk) could not be further from reality. You will not receive any access codes digitally when you purchase a hardcopy version of a book because all codes are delivered to you in the sealed packet.While it's never pleasant, great managers truly approach it in a different fashion, and that was utterly fascinating to me to see a new side of that. With vital performance and career lessons and ideas for how to apply them, it is a must-read for managers at every level. For a start, managers are not the ones who actually do the work that may lead to the results they desire. By defining what the end result should be, readers will find that they don't have to waste time trying to control the steps along the way.

Now we were all told as children that we get the best bang for the buck by improving our weak areas.Successful management encourages and helps employees to develop these innate talents and to become even better at what – thanks to their natural inclinations – they’re already good at. Having just finished it I think it’s a must read for anyone who is or aspires to be in a people management role.

Gallup presents the remarkable findings of its revolutionary study of more than 80,000 managers in First, Break All the Rules, revealing what the world’s greatest managers do differently. In his role as author, independent consultant and speaker, Marcus Buckingham has been the subject of in-depth profiles in The New York Times, Fortune, Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal and is routinely lauded by such corporations as Toyota, Coca-Cola, Master Foods, Wells Fargo, Yahoo and Disney as an invaluable resource in informing, challenging, mentoring and inspiring people to find their strengths and obtain and sustain long-lasting personal success. Once a manager adopts this foundation of hiring for talent, the easier it will be to use the rest of the keys. I'm not a manager, but this book felt especially relevant to me since my company just did an employee survey based on the 12 questions Gallup formulated through this study. Lesson 3: Look to the most productive and successful employees when determining the standard everybody should strive for.Even though company-wide policies and procedures may affect individuals, it’s up to leaders to see how to implement these. It's highly addictive to get core insights on personally relevant topics without repetition or triviality. I picked up this book because it was mentioned in some Forbes article I saw on things great managers do. W środku jest tak dużo dobrego materiału, że słuchając bałem się, że przez roztargnienie czegoś zapomnę.

The book then went on to explain the four keys in more detail concluding with a final chapter on how to apply the four keys in business situations. Great managers establish alternative career paths for employees, thereby keeping them in the best-fitting job position. I found the book brings an interesting perspective to workplace productivity and people development. Talents are ingrained ways of doing things that come naturally, and these are different and unique at the individual level.As a manager, recognize that someone's talents are usually enduring and extremely difficult to change, so make sure you select for talent and cast each person to the right match based on talents. For this reason, great managers shift their attention away from controlling employees and onto employees’ performance results and outcomes. These questions are designed to help managers identify and focus on their employees' strengths, ultimately leading to a more productive and engaged workforce.
