Tough management

Faced with shrinking budgets, smaller staffs, shorter deadlines, more demanding customers and an unrelenting call for innovation and growth, many executives and managers are feeling “highly stressed.” The old man- agement paradigms aren’t working, which means we need a fresh, bottom- line approach designed for what really works in today’s business environ- ment. This new approach is what business strategist and CEO of NFI Research Chuck Martin offers in this summary.

Based on more than two years of surveys of more than 2,000 senior executives and managers, this summary provides managers with a new way to tackle tough decisions in today’s high-pressure business world and deliv- er the results their companies need for sustained growth.

In it, Martin also explains how successful business leaders have met the demand to do more, deliver more and grow more by using practical, power- ful and proven techniques — without raising stress levels. By focusing on actual results and forcing the hard decisions, you can learn to communicate and collaborate while remaining flexible. This summary offers real solu- tions to real problems in the real world.
