Insights about underlying first principles of Management
27 December 2018
When we talk about management, we talk about how to orchestrate the existing people to get maximum performance out of them.
This book goes to whys of things. He gives a new definition to the word "talent" and then argues that why talent cant be "taught". Your best shot to excellent performance is to map people's talent to the work that needs that talent. Example, a nurse can do repetitive job of dealing with sick patients and still drive pleasure and satisfaction out of it - this empathy is hardwired in her brain. He also talks about things you can and CANNOT change in . parson. You need to "manage around weakness" of your people.
Full of Insights!! After reading this book, you look at things from a different lens. You know what you are looking for a candidate when hiring, you know what you are looking for when working with a subordinate and so on. You learn to filter what you see from what first principle is under action underneath.
Recommended who for Managers, HR, Executives and anyone who deals with other people within their company to maximise throughput.
