Synopsis: From the brain trust at The Atlanta Consulting Group comes a simple method hailed as a revolution in management practice: learning to care.
Caring isn’t a frill. It delivers results. And for some unenlightened managers, learning to care can be a matter of corporate life or death.
Managing from the Heart is the story of Harry Hartwell, a composite character drawn from decades of the authors’ field experience on the front lines of management reform. Known by his staffers as “the Abominable No Man,” Harry’s remarkable transformation into a caring and compassionate manage offers an easy-to-apply business parable—and an absolutely painless, one-of-a-kind learning experience. Acquire the five principles of caring management. Your people will be glad you did. And so will everyone who keeps an eye on your bottom line.
