“All Management Problems Solved in One Book???!!”
Managing people is harder now than ever before. What can a real manager in the real world actually do in the face of today’s daunting challenges? Here’s your chance to find out! Bruce’s newest book, The 27 Challenges Managers Face, has hit the shelves!
When I talk about the 27 challenges, people often ask me, “Why are there 27 challenges, instead of 26 or 28 or some other number?” We are focused on 27 particular challenges because our research shows that these 27 challenges are by far the most common employee situations with which managers most often struggle (and the step-by-step solutions to solving them). That’s based on twenty years of workplace research!
