There are thousands of books about being a manager and a leader, but only a handful about being an employee. This book therefore fills a gap as regards the important interaction between both sides of an organisation. The interaction which, at its most efficient, boosts job satisfaction and profitability.
This book takes the reader on a groundbreaking journey on which practical tips and philosophical ideas are blended in a thought-provoking and interesting style, increasing the insight that the manager and employee are different sides of the same coin that must be seen as deeply integrated rather than as isolated phenomena. This prepares the ground for a better and more effective interaction between the manager and the employee, which in turn improves job satisfaction and profitability.
The book is written with intimacy, depth and humour, often weaving together mini anecdotes and philosophical observations across the chapters.
“The manager and the employee is particularly interesting in the way it also focuses on the employee, which isn’t that common for leadership manuals. Abundant practical examples give weight to the many thought-provoking ideas it contains. A book well worth reading.”
