have been managing people for
the last 15 years and I'm always
looking for ways to improve
my leadership skills. So when I
was asked to do a review on the
book How To Be A Great Boss
I was very excited and hopeful
that I would find some pearls to
add to my leadership toolbox. I was
not disappointed.
The book is a very educational,
step-by-step guide to becoming
a better boss. The book defines
the difference between leadership
and management and how the
two work together to make a great
boss. It contains self-assessments
that, if answered honestly, will
help the reader to identify areas of
weakness, along with suggestions
on ways to improve.
The book also
* Discusses how to determine
where direct reports "belong"
with respect to one of four
categories: the right people in
the right seat, the right people in
the wrong seat, the wrong people
in the right seat, and the wrong
people in the wrong seat.
* Walks the reader through
setting the bar and scoring staff
in order to identify areas for
improvement.
* Offers ways to approach staff development and ways of approaching difficult conversations.
I found this book to be a very
quick, easy read. The concepts were
simple but applicable to any size
business. After taking the self-assessments myself, I identified areas

where I could improve my leadership and management skills. I will
be sharing this book and its concepts with my senior management
team, who all have direct reports.
This book is a valuable read for
anyone in a leadership position,
regardless of how long they've
occupied that position. I feel it
will be useful as a tool and as a
unique way of looking at yourself
and your staff. AE
