by Scott, Kim Malone.
Type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York : St. Martin's Press, 2017Description: xxi, 246 pages ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9781250103505 (hardcover); .Subject(s): Executive ability | Leadership | Personnel management | Corporate cultureSummary: We're constantly told that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. When you become a manager, it's your job to say it - and your obligation. The author was an executive at Google and then at Apple, where she developed a class on how to be a good boss. Her simple idea is: you have to care personally at the same time that you challenge directly. When you challenge without caring, it's obnoxious aggression; when you care without challenging, it's ruinous empathy. When you do neither, it's manipulative insincerity. This simple framework can help you build better relationships at work, and fulfill your three key responsibilities as a leader: creating a culture of feedback (praise and criticism), building a cohesive team, and achieving results to be proud of.
