Good People, Bad Managers
How Work Culture Corrupts Good Intentions
Samuel A. Culbert
Reviews and Awards
"Addresses a relevant, significant problem: management culture is rife with deception. Regardless of one's level within a firm, all managers make subjective decisions, protect their own turf (i.e., pursue departmental goals at the expense of corporate goals), and do not treat all employees fairly as they have biases. This book is strong, in a practical sense, in that real-world examples are explored and approaches for improving the culture are given. Additionally, soft management skills (communication and psychology) are promoted in this text. Undoubtedly, managers who are able to better understand how they make decisions and improve their communication with employees will make better managers." -- Personnel Psychology"
