The one minute manager builds high performing teams

Gung ho!

The 80 minute MBA

Richard Reeves and John Knell, published by Headline Business Plus, 154 pages.

Billed as the ‘Reduced Shakespeare for Business’ this book really does what it says on the title page, covering key topics that are not normally taught (well) in business schools or training courses. These include leadership, sustainability, ethics, community building and corporate culture. The language is not stuffy or difficult and the information is focused on practical delivery.
