If you’re a leader responsible for developing people in your organization, you should know that Bob Moore is releasing a new book today.
Bob has condensed his 30+ years of expertise into seven keys for visionary leaders. Here’s a snippet from the chapter on Coach-Based Management:
“Becoming an effective coach-based manager requires a stretch for many managers and a major shift from the role of an autocratic boss or demanding supervisor. The organizational culture also needs to move from reward problem-solving behaviors to rewarding problem-prevention. This means including employees in a more proactive, collaborative approach that considers what could go wrong, how to prevent problems, and developing contingency plans should surprises occur. Today’s information workers may actually know more about how to do their jobs than their managers do.”
This is what John Stephanek, Manager of Organizational Development had to say:
“Bob has nailed it! What you need to do to climb the management ladder is blueprinted in these pages. Master the skills in the chapter on “Coach-Based Management” alone and you will double your value as a leader of people”
What I like best about the book is that each chapter ends with a recap of key points, questions to ponder, action plans, and assignments.
Order the book before midnight, November 1, 2007, and you get 13 additional supplemental resources from experts like Keith Ferrazzi, Michael Angier, Kevin Eikenberry, and yours truly, Lora Adrianse.
