The author knows, from experience, that it is people that make a business great, and this book shows

Will enable any junior or middle manager to get better results from staff.
Detailed examples throughout to show how to make it work.
Author Adam Hutchison says, “What makes a business great? The answer every time is people. People are paramount to any business. This book explores the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of successful people-management. I hope it will help managers and team leaders in businesses of all sizes. Whether they employ five people or 5000, my message is the same: human beings need rewards to perform well. Positive comments drive attitudes and behaviours. Forget these simple rules at your own risk!”
