 CEO of Only Connect Consulting, Inc. and author of the entertaining and very results oriented book Managing for People Who Hate Managing: Be a Success By Being Yourself, Devora Zack describes why the manager's personality may not fit what they thought they knew about managing. Devora Zack shares her techniques for personal self assessment so managers can determine whether they are feelers or thinkers. With this understanding in place, a manager can create a flexible managerial style that fits those traits and those of the individual staff members. Devora Zack guides managers through the process of flexible communication with employees, and how to avoid the pitfalls that await unwary managers now in charge of former colleagues. Devora shares how to treat employees how they want to be treated, and how that may differ from the manager's usual approach. Learn how to be effective, successful, and happy as a manager by being yourself.
