About the Book

The new-age manager has come to occupy the centrestage with the whole business revolving around him. He needs to be a professional who can lead, and foster creativity and innovation with a clear focus on stakeholder value maximization. The Effective Manager: Skills and Strategies deals with the roles of a manager at three levels: at the individual level, working level and at the leader’s level. Various skills required at each level have been presented in a lucid, simple and downto- earth style with easy-to-follow suggestions listed out.

The skills covered range from the traditional to the contemporary, finally leading to the new age. With no complex theoretical concepts, it certainly is not yet another book on executive skills but a different repository altogether with new insights.
