“The perfect primer for new managers and not a bad read …”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Roger Ferguson
The perfect primer for new managers and not a bad read for us more experienced managers as well! So many of the resources in management training are focused on traits, not tools. Experts tell us to “be better listeners”, for example, without providing any concrete tools to assist us in the process. Doug Thorpe’s experience and insight provides us with a fully loaded toolbox of useful, practical solutions to every day management challenges. It is an uncommon book!
About the Author
I am an entrepreneur, author, speaker, and mentor for new managers. I have a passion to guide new, first time managers; helping them find health, wealth and happiness while they master the demands of learning how to lead others. Be watchful…there are two of us who write under the name Doug Thorpe. I’m the business guy, he’s the professor.
My early years as a banker showed me a lot about many different kinds of business. Then, as an entrepreneur, I had the chance to build several companies. At the core of these ventures were the people who made things work. Leading them was my toughest challenge, but also the biggest blessing.
