Managing People 2020, by Eric Swenson
In 2003, I quit my job (without having another job), decided to start my own business and write a book.
The book identified the leadership styles of the best people I had worked for in 17 years of corporate life. It was called “Managing People in the 21st Century”.
Late last year, I realized that I had all new stories and anecdotes from the next 17 years, conducting leadership programs around the country and working closely with hundred of business owners and executives.
The result is a complete revamp of the original book.
But what surprised me the most is that the essential characteristics of leaders have stayed the same. Leadership styles have changed, but leadership fundamentals have not.
Adjustments have been made to today’s contemporary workforce, but again they’re stylistic, not fundamental changes.
And clearly the pandemic crisis has necessitated change, but only to accelerate and make intentional those darn fundamentals, which again stay the same.
The book’s available at all the usual suspects, starting here.
