The Winning Manager's Playbook demonstrates six commonsense practices that will create a systematic framework useful to managers, entrepreneurs, and executives alike, providing them with:

  • Numerous real-company anecdotes that bring the concepts to life.
  • The building blocks, neither faddish nor outdated, of a successful business.
  • A means of creating a company culture of achievement and accountability.
  • Detailed guidance on how to execute the key concepts, with a focus on goals.
