It’s Okay To Be The Boss

In his best-selling book, It’s Okay to Be the Boss, Bruce Tulgan puts his finger on the biggest problem in the workplace today–an under-management epidemic affecting managers at all levels of the organization and in all industries–and offers another way. His clear, step-by-step guide to becoming the strong manager employees need challenges bosses everywhere to: spell out expectations, tell employees exactly what to do and how to do it, monitor and measure performance constantly, correct failure quickly and reward success even more quickly. That’s how you set employees up for success and help them earn what they need.
