Managing to be Human
Leading Business Organisations with Integrity and Effectiveness
Managing To Be Human is a book about how to manage staff and workload within an organisation while retaining your humanity and consideration for others. It is a management book with an ethical stance. The book looks at empowering others and inspiring creativity; the potential and transformation of people; how having clear goals and vision means that teams are motivated and work effectively; how to handle performance reviews; making meetings worthwhile; decision making; how to deal with unsatisfactory performance and behaviour; and managing difficult people. In a world where companies and organisations are focussed on the bottom line, Brian Smyth seeks to highlight the human aspect and how a happy worker is a productive worker.
