NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Kevin G. Armstrong, owner of business advisory firm The Interdependent Training Group, today announced the publication of The Miracle Manager: Why True Leaders Rarely Make Great Managers ( available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes Media.
The Miracle Manager presents a new approach to organizational management. Drawing from the author's 20-plus years of business advisory experience, Armstrong shares his proven strategies for implementing management techniques based on revolutionary concepts to create scalable and sustainable cultures of accountability. As Armstrong puts it, "accountability and politics cannot live in the same room." The driving concept behind these strategies is the important distinction between great leaders and effective managers.
"Throughout history, many influential people have earned the title of leader," says Armstrong. "Leaders look to the future, not concerned with who follows. Being an effective manager requires you to efficiently and effectively work through others – to be what I call a 'manacoach.'"
Through case studies of great leaders and coaches of the past, Armstrong presents years of data and experience illustrating why being a stellar player rarely equates to being a great coach (or manager). By embracing the principles in this book, Armstrong hopes readers will learn to align management techniques with company culture, embrace vulnerability as key for growth and leverage the difference between a leader and a "manacoach."
The book The Miracle Manager is now available for purchase on Amazon.com.
