The methods and ideas provided in this book are practical, proven and relevant. It is useful and not another document to gather dust on the bookshelf.

Author and CEO of Human Resource Professionals Michael L. Ryan brings 50 years of experience to his new business guidebook, “Don’t Manage ’Em—Lead ’Em!: A Briefcase of Practical, By-the-Numbers Approaches to Leading Associates in the Workplace” (published by iUniverse), an innovative approach to helping companies lead associates.

“Don’t Manage ’Em—Lead ’Em!” focuses on the idea that all organizations have two assets: human assets and everything else. Ryan teaches readers how to utilize these assets and become effective leaders, achieving maximum productivity and success. His methods will help leaders develop skills such as:

  •     Recruiting and maintaining talented employees
  •     Implementing and following policies, procedures and fair practices
  •     Improving communication, constructive criticism and conflict resolution skills

Ryan describes the book as a briefcase full of files and enclosures that serve as tools for any effective leader. He offers both practical methods for leading associates as well as techniques for self-improvement, which he also believes to be an important quality of leaders.

“Most leadership books are academic and offer unrealistic approaches to maximizing productivity,” says Ryan. “The methods and ideas provided in this book are practical, proven and relevant. It is useful and not another document to gather dust on the bookshelf.”
