Description

Highly talented employees are the key to every organization's success. Yet despite their best intentions, for most managers growing talent while successfully doing their 'day jobs' and staying on top of results seems like a pipe dream. But it doesn't have to be.

Wendy Axelrod and Jeannie Coyle show you how exceptional managers make this dream a reality. These managers go way beyond the usual coaching and performance management to integrate development into their everyday workflow rather than making it a separate "to do." Axelrod and Coyle draw from their research with exceptional managers from companies like Corning, Microsoft, Siemens, Merck, and many more to illustrate five powerful practices that can be used in any organization, of any size, in any industry.
