The Honest Truth about Managing

Managing people is one of the toughest jobs in business. Make the right choices, and there is no limit to how you and your business can grow. Make the wrong choices, and there is sure to be trouble ahead. The problem is, no one ever tells you this up front and helps you avoid the pitfalls.

--My Direct Reports Were Fighting
--I Inherited an Employee Who Hated Me
--The President Tried to Bully Me
--I Fired a Friend
--I Didn't Know What My Bosses Wanted
--Retaining My Workers Was Tough

Know the solutions to tackle any problem.
