A client recommended this as an excellent leadership book and I agree - What a great read! The book is called "The Gifted Boss" and the Author is Dale Dauten. One of my favourite bits is on page 17 where the author states that gifted bosses and great employees want the same things from their workplaces - freedom from management, mediocrity and morons; a change; a chance. In many ways this expresses the right message for today's workplace. Employees need empowerment, opportunities and variety. They need a manager that doesn't micro-manage but instead delegates, coaches and clearly expresses employee expectations. They want a manager that trusts them. If you would like to purchase this book it is available at Chapters Online.
