Clever: leading your smartest, most creative people

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

If your company is like most, it has a handful of people who generate disproportionate quantities of value: a manager who spots consumer-spending patterns no one else sees and defines new market categories your enterprise can serve; a strategist who anticipates global changes and correctly interprets their business implications. Companies' competitiveness, even survival, increasingly hinges on such "clever people." But the truth is, clever people are as fiercely independent as they are clever-they don't want to be led. In this book, Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones offer insights drawn from their extensive research and explain how to Identify your clever people and their motivations; how to shelter them from political distractions that can inhibit their productivity; how to manage the unique tensions that can arise when 'clevers' work together. Leading clever people can be enormously challenging, yet doing so effectively is the key to your organisation's sustained success. Lively and engaging, this book provides the ideas, practices, and examples you need to create an environment where your most brilliant people can flourish. Signed by author on inside front page

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
