New Book: The People Management Handbook

The best-kept secret and hardest lesson that no one tells you when you become a manager of people is this: you don’t become a great manager overnight—you have to work at it just like anything else you want to excel at. You can’t expect to instantly know everything there is to know about managing people and being a great leader just because you were given a piece of paper, a title change, or a salary increase—and no one expects that of you right away.

Most experienced leaders understand that becoming a good manager of people takes practice, perseverance, and commitment. They know that it’s not about bossing people around all the time, nor is it about being everyone’s best friend. It’s not about being stuck in the back office crunching numbers all day (at least it doesn’t have to be), and it’s not about shucking all your responsibilities onto the people below you.

Invest in employee scheduling software, you can boost productivity at your organization and use the time you save to grow other areas of your business.

Managing people is about inspiring people to do their best work. It’s about being a good listener, an effective communicator, an idea person, an organized planner, a doer, a finder of great talent, and a person who knows how to make tough decisions when tough decisions need to be made.

I’m excited to let you know that I wrote a book on this subject, not because I’m perfect or because I have all the answers, but because I’ve learned a lot in my experience and time as a leader.

It’s called the People Management Handbook.

My hope is that you can use pieces of this book—the lessons I’ve learned along the way—to become a better manager and leader at your own business. I hope it inspires you to do more for your team, not because anyone tells you that you need to be better, but because it’s what your employees deserve.
