How To Make A Resilient Environment Work For You

In a tough job market, making changes and changing attitudes can have a really positive impact on all employees — managers especially. The biggest challenge to this is staying motivated and finding a better balance between work/life and personal goals. To learn more, click here .

A more difficult challenge arises when employees realize it’s their duty to the company. As one of the very few exceptions to the company-first standard, this can pose a significant challenge to an individual’s personal happiness and well-being. So what does someone who is not a manager do to mitigate such a negative result? A lot. That’s the message in this article.

A lot of people have asked “Does a manager have to be a top performer?” The answer is no.

As with all things in life, “the right” number of hours in the day, a good work-life balance and balance on personal goals and aspirations all contribute to employee motivation and happiness. In this article, we will look into the topic of how to make a better manager job and make a better manager career, without having to be top performer or even an excellent manager.

We also hope that in the end, this will be a more productive, interesting and rewarding way for you to write about your life . If not, good luck in whatever that next step may be.

“Managers create value — not employees.”

One of the things that really excites me about “The Managers Guide to Managing Yourself” is that it is a very personal piece of work, that is not necessarily a generic blueprint. It is also personal because it is the work of people you know personally and are likely to be friends with — you. I hope you enjoy the process of writing and reading this. And if all goes according to plan, I hope you make a list or two.

To get the book, you can pre-order it here at www.TheManagersGuideToManaging.com

We will also be making the book available for download (for free!) on Amazon ( www.amazon.com ) in the near future.
