IN THIS SUMMARY

In Answers for Managers, Radzik and Emek have distilled a virtual library of management concepts into an extremely practical guide, whose primary value lies in the fact that it provides managers with the information they have requested, in a format that they can readily use in the trenches.Some subordinates are motivated, while others are practically asleep on the job, sometimes, even managers find themselves less than enthusiastic. Though seemingly an elusive and mysterious force, motivation can be managed. Once a manager understands what motivates employees and what does not, he or she can achieve predictable results."What’s the Greatest Motivator?"Q: Why do I have problems keeping myself motivated?A: Life’s greatest demotivators are those around you who negate, rather than encourage, your attempts to challenge yourself. When we examine the lives of successful people, we find their biggest challenge was warding off detractors. Seek companions who have confidence in you and your abilities-their positive messages will bolster your motivation."I Should Have Been Promoted."Q: Although I’ve worked hard, volunteered for unpopular projects, saved the company money, and bailed them out of several crises, they promoted someone over me who is a recent employee without my experience, knowledge, and problem-solving skills. Do you think I’m justified in handing in my resignation?A: Your superiors are human and occasionally make mistakes in judgment. If the new promotee is as incapable as you say, that fact will become evident, and you may then be asked to assume the position. Or, your superiors may not have promoted you to this particular job because they have something better in mind for you.Answers for Managers is an excellent resource for those dealing with day-to-day management concerns in any industry.
