We know that the world of organizations and employment is changing, but all managers, in all kinds of businesses and services, still face the same challenge - how do you get the work done through the efforts of others? Small employers are the norm and it is common to find people dropped into the role of the manager without any guidance about what to do.

In this practical, no-nonsense book, anyone who manages other people - in any kind of business, from supervisor to CEO - will find common sense on the typical problems that keep most bosses awake.

How to Be a Decent Boss - And Still Get Things Done covers the basics: what do you need to know and what do you need to do when you have to manage other people. How do you grit your teeth and conduct really difficult conversations? How do you speak so that people want to listen to you and listen so that they want to speak to you? How do you find good people, keep them and one day (like it or not) let them go? How do you manage teams and handle change? How do you run a dignified workplace and still get things done?
