Help is on the way for the legions of managers who woke up to find out they're in charge. Based on her background as a manager, trainer, and leadership consultant and coach, Devora Zack offers a book of lifesaving tips that is as humorous as it is wise. People hate managing because they think they have to pretend they're somebody else to do it. It's hard to measure up to some impossible ideal of the charismatic, take-charge boss who never hesitates or makes a bad call. Fact is, the ideal manager is a myth, and it's perfectly fine - even better - to be your normal, authentic self when you manage others! Devora Zack decided to write this book after witnessing clients actually request demotions - or reject promotions - to avoid becoming a manager at any cost. Smart, successful people in every industry halt or thwart their own professional success. They cease to grow, climb down the ladder, and the company misses out. The secret of Managing for People Who Hate Managing is that anyone can learn to be a boss with a bit of self-awareness and respect for others. Using her tested method of self-assessment, Zack provides a roadmap for every personality type to find the recipe for success. Whether you're a thinker, feeler, introvert or extrovert, you'll find the strategy and style that's just right for you. Zack has your back!
