Learn how to get your team on track, re-engaged, and performing at a level that is consistent with your big goals. With over two decades of leadership experience, Mike's insight should be a requirement for anyone who leads people in today's changing world.

NEW 2ND EDITION WILL BE PUBLISHED JUNE 5TH, 2018 Over the past decade, the call for evidence-based management has been on the rise. Managers have become increasingly skeptical of advice that is based soley on anecdotes, otherwise known as the "art of management"; they demand, instead, proof that the management practices espoused by the authors in the field are truly effective. Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager delivers the goods, covering a wide range of critical management skills, such as hiring, inspiring, training, developing, motivating and coaching. Readers are rewarded with a thorough understanding of how to put the science of management to work for themselves and their organizations. An organizational psychologist by training and experience, author Gary Latham brings a unique perspective to the art-versus-science debate as he underscores the critical role that empirical research plays in successfully hiring and managing employees. Latham advocates using the "situational" interview style in the hiring process over the "free-flowing" one, for example, as it's proven more effective in assessing a candidate's skills and aptitude. Written in an accessible, conversational style, Becoming the Evidence-Based Manager draws upon 50 years of management research, and provides front-line managers with key lessons and tips to help them put research to everyday use on the job. From hiring and training to supervising and appraising, managers and leaders will learn proven techniques for achieving high performance from their employees.

To enhance the performance of their employees, managers need to reach an extraordinary number of decisions every day based on information and training as well as on their experience and instinct for what is right. But are the assumptions and beliefs behind theses decisions always based on real evidence  or do many follow instead the latest management fad, personal opinion, anecdotal observation, pseudo-research or just a dogged preference for the status quo? The authors of The Science of Management: Fighting Fads and Fallacies with Evidence-Based Practices have collated and analysed almost 16,000 scientific research articles in the fields of psychology and management to uncover over 800 surprising findings that contradict many common management practices. This book presents some of these key discoveries organised around the core management responsibilities of: • workplace objectives • team performance • individual performance • addressing undesirable behaviour • promoting employee wellbeing • recruitment and selection.Highlighting and redressing these fallacies, the authors offer the reader the opportunity to challenge many sources of bias that contaminate our beliefs and opinions and provoke unsuitable decisions at work.A great read for all those involved in management and supervision, from student to experienced practitioner level.
