Good but a bit repetitive
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2018
This was a handy book that provided some nice tips and pointers. While reading, the repetition became a bit onerous making me start skimming parts while trying to repress "no duh" mental notes. I think the valuable messages and lessons could have been easily consolidated in half this space with a similar - or even increased - effectiveness. On the very positive side, though, the authors provided tips for a management newbie to identify subordinate penchants - or even peer penchants. I would recommend this book for leaders who grew up in the technical generations rather than prior - If you're a Gen-X person, this is what you probably learned in high school. If this is a Millenial trying to work with very different people and build generational and social bridges, this would be a great reference to skim through.
