We’ve heard the slogans: “People are our most important asset.” “We want to be an employer of choice.”
And we know most companies fall far short of those aspirations, for lots of reasons.
James Monroe is the author of “Don’t Be a Dick Manager: The Down & Dirty Guide to Management,” (and its workplace-friendly companion, “Don’t Be a Jerk Manager”). The book is based on his experience managing teams of creative people, technical people, and salespeople in the media, technology, and service industries for more than two decades.
He now works to help managers see their roles through new eyes and break old patterns that cost companies time, energy, and money.
