Modern employees are expected­­and eager­­to voice their opinions. ... Average job tenure is now 3.5 years­­and falling. ... Employees demand instant results­­and immediate rewards.

  • 12 steps to better bossing
  • Different leadership styles for different results
  • Where to find the best job candidates
  • How to structure a job package they won't turn down
  • 10 things to do to keep your best people
  • How to use and manage e-mail appropriately
  • Techniques for coaching, team-building, and setting realistic expectations
  • Ways to effectively discipline­­and terminate­­problem employees
  • and more
