: New: Book Report: Taking People With You

It's a management book. It was written by a guy who worked at Pepsi, so you probably don't want his advice about what things are worth doing; he chose to sell sugar water instead of change the world. But this book has the usual advice about management: inspire people to do great things and then don't micro-manage. Admit you don't have all the answers, give other folks a chance to fix things. Reward honesty and ideas. The author says that his book is special because it comes with exercises at the end of each chapter. These are more like simple checklists: have you followed up on the things you learned in this chapter by doing ____ at least once the following week? You could make up your own checklist... but most folks won't bother. Simple checklists work pretty well, so this could be a good book for that.
