The U.S. recently lost a beloved cultural icon: Steve Jobs, the creative co-founder and visionary, charismatic former CEO of Apple Inc. who grew his business from starting out in his garage to becoming a mega successful corporation with the customer being his main focus. For people looking to follow in his footsteps and lead the way into the future, Helen M. Thamm delivers “: How to Manage with a Magic Wand: (No, Don’t Hit Your ‘Problem Employees’ over the Head with It!)” (published by WestBow Press), her new book revealing the ideas and foundation behind her leadership secrets.

Learning from her own mistakes, Thamm developed a process called Respect Teams, Respect Teams, which includes specific techniques to help professionals more smoothly transition into the role of a manager, after her own transition into management ended in disaster. This book is a step-by-step how-to-guide to help the neophyte female leader transform from a great clinician/technician into a confident and competent team motivator and developer, while also increasing her life balance and satisfaction.

“How to Manage with a Magic Wand” acquaints readers with Chris, a fictional new nurse manager who learns to use the Respect Teams process in her new role. Readers will get a personal view of this developing leader's progress as she reaches out to a knowledgeable and supportive mentor and gradually adds new techniques to her leadership toolkit.

Using the Respect Teams process, Chris is able to navigate the stormy seas of her first year in middle management, and develop into what Thamm was once called, "the manager with a magic wand—you can get them (staff) to do anything."
