I loved this book. I listened to it twice. Every single piece of advice probably will not be applicable to every boss or company, but there are many in this book that I can use. The style is direct and understated, not preachy. Many instructive and inspiring anecdotes.
There was nothing wrong with this audio book, but there was nothing spectacular either. The speaker was good and talked about important things to know to be a good boss, mentioning some worthwhile points. If you've never been a boss before then it's worth listening to. if you have been a boss for a little while, it's ok. If you've been a boss for a long time, you may want to revisit this audio to make sure you are treating your employees with respect.
This is a must. Well read and keeps you interested. There are many great leasons. If you are looking for advice on how to lead you staff, you will find it in this CD.
The book is chalked full of practical advice for being a good boss. It basically contains 40-something concepts of leading and managing packed into a hundred and fifty-something pages. It moves fast and doesn’t have much depth, but it’s quick and worth reading.
Not rocket science, but good advice for new bosses. A checklist of the really important things to remember. Definitely worth the listen.
This book is good. You can learn a few things from it and has some great stories. If you are in management, this is a must hear on how to treat people and how to act like a boss. I would definately recommend this book to anyone. Each chapter is short but to the point. Great advise is given and its interesting. The reader could have had a less monotone voice but overall good.
It's knowledge which seems all too common. I thought there was a lot more value in other similar titles - (Drucker: Managing in the Next Society; McCormack: On Managing, et al). Not only did the information strike me as basic, but the delivery is crafty, overly-poetic, and repetitive. The author threw in as many puns & double meanings as he could - ok, maybe 1 or 2 less than he could have. Sorry - just can't recommend this book over others that you could listen to.
This book provides good advice, particulary about treating people with dignity and respect. This book is a "must read" for anyone in a supervisory role.
Sure you may not use every idea in the book, but like all of Fox's works, there is TONS here that will be directly applicable. Shot off in rapid-fire succession (again, like all of Fox's works), this CD doesn't waste time, and you may find yourself pausing to take a mental break and jot down some ideas. How to Become a Great Boss is one of my Fox favorites (along with HT Make Big Money...Small Business, despite its math problems).
Having recently taken on a new position as supervisor, I found this book chock full of good ideas and inspiration. I may not use everything suggested, but it was a good way to charge my battery on the way to work.
