In this counter-intuitive book for managers, the author argues that no one is perfect and that success as a leader is not about being perfect and always doing the right thing; it is about accepting your own humanity and adopting a number of down-to-earth attitudes and values. That's when we achieve true (adequate) success. Through ten commandments-starting with \"Be humble-as a manager, you are also an employee\"-management expert Kelly Odell provides a new perspective on how we should behave as managers in this age of differing cultures and values.
How we think about people, motivation, power and relationships is the foundation for successful management. Odell argues that too much emphasis is placed on the leader setting a good example and becoming a (heroic) role model, when in fact a leader whose priority is on other people is more likely to create value for their company and succeed as a manager.
