Marcus Buckinghamand Curt Coffman tackle the fallacies of standard managementthinking and how good managerscreate and sustain employee satisfaction in First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently. The book is a result of observations based on 80,000 interviewswith managers [ [http://www.marcusbuckingham.com/books/break-rules.php Marcus Buckingham | First, Break All The Rules ] ] as conducted by the Gallup Organizationin the last 25 years. The core of the matter lies in how these managers have debunked old mythsabout management and how they created new truths on obtaining and keeping talented people in their organization. Some key ideas of the book include what the best managers do and don’t do: they treat every employee as an individual; they don’t try to fix weaknesses, but instead focus on strengths and talent; and they find ways to measure, count, and reward outcomes.
According to the authors, the basic things all managers should know are what the employee is expected to do, how to equip him to do it, and how to give praise for a job well done.
