What is the number one reason why managers fail to increase productivity and get the best out of their staff? It’s because they neglect to keep their leadership priorities in front of them. In today’s work environment, it is easy to become task-focused, leaving teams that are over-managed (but under-led) and operating below their true potential. James Robbins combines practical training management systems with simple execution to show leaders how to stay on target and keep their staff equipped to bring their best to work each day.
