A guide to managing and motivating individuals.

Author Jane Treber Macken draws upon her years of experience managing, supervising, and teaching in The Art of Managing: How to Build a Better Workplace and Relationships, a guide to managing and motivating individuals. Offering an overview of the history of management theory, recommendations for cultivating the positive characteristics of successful managers, motivate others, form and manage successful teams, and much more, The Art of Managing is up-close and personal in the delivery of its message. "We judge others by their behavior, but we judge ourselves by our intentions. To close the gap, we must be open to change and suggestions." Highly recommended.

The perfect combination of Business & Psychology

Reviewed by Vicki Landes for Reader Views (5/07) Business Guru Jane Treber Macken calls on her 36 years of acclaimed expertise in the business field to put together her first book, "The Art of Managing: How to Build a Better Workplace and Relationships." Her vast knowledge in both business and psychology bring a holistic flow to her methods, making her strategy a natural marriage between the two fields. "Bridging business and psychology will assist you not only in managing your workplace, but also in managing your personal life. Both are really about successfully managing relationships." "The Art of Managing" is the enlightened manager's guide to a more effective management style. It teaches and sharpens skills in successful communication based on personality types and levels of ability and motivation. By positively exploiting certain character `flaws' and traits and knowing another's behavior style, managers can boost both individual vision and group interoperability. Macken utilizes specific examples from her background and upbringing to illustrate her points. She also brings in plenty of descriptive charts, exercises, and bolds key phrases that can be used as a management mantra. "The Art of Managing" is a quick read while easy to digest and emulate. Macken does a superb job bringing her technique full circle while bringing in the importance of a foundation of self-knowledge, continual personal growth, and unwavering ethics throughout. "The Art of Managing" is perfect for those established and aspiring managers hoping to be more effective leaders by building work environments full of trust, honesty, and open communication. I also think the book would serve those interested in bettering their own interpersonal skills. Whether or not one is a "manager" per se, the book offers valuable information on how to get to know oneself on a deeper level and improve your interaction experiences with people of other personality types. "The Art of Managing" is definitely a positive alternative for those who have become frustrated with other methods of management. Jane Treber Macken's style is motivating and insightful, bringing a fresh take on employee mental well-being while keeping the ultimate goal of a successful business in focus. "People who continue to learn are better able to implement and manage continuous change, meet customer expectations and needs, and lead an organization to success in the competitive economic environment."
