This is the best Management book out there for designers

cover of ‘the making of a manager’

1. ‘Your job, as a manager, is to get better outcomes from a group of people working together.’

2. ‘The best outcomes come from inspiring people to action, not telling them what to do.’

3. ‘The job of a manager … is to turn one person’s particular talent into performance.’

4. ‘Just because your report didn’t work out on your team doesn’t mean it’s on him.’

5. ‘You’re more likely to have a great meeting if everyone necessary, and nobody extraneous, is there.’

6. ‘At the beginning of the project, let your report know how you’re planning to be involved.’

7. ‘Jobs may be short, but careers are long.’
