- BECOMING THE EVIDENCE - BASED MANAGER : MAKING THE SCIENCE OF MANAGEMENT WORK FOR YOU
DetailsWritten in the conversational tone and style of managers,"Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager" lays out management advice in a logical linear framework that ties directly to the natural progression of management skills throughout the employee life cycle: from the hiring stage to the retention stage.Six general lessons of management guides readers on what they should and sometimes shouldnt be doing to become an evidence-based manager. And management research results of the past 50 years are explained, synthesized, and translated into practical guidelines for handling the difficult areas of management that many managers deal with daily. Combined, you have an evidence-based handbook to which you can return time and again.Arguing that there is too much art and not enough science in the way managers manage, Gary Latham brings together a unique combination of research and step-by-step practicality in this compact and highly practical toolkit of research-backed techniques, methods, and quick-to-implement action steps for hiring, inspiring, training, motivating, and appraising employees to deliver high performance.From A to Z, Latham shows front-line managers how to put five decades of research into everyday practice as he lays out techniques to inspire employees to execute strategy, ways to coach and appraise employees to be high performers, and new approaches to instill resiliency in the face of setbacks.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Gary Latham is a professor of Organizational Effectiveness in the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.
