Managing to Make a Difference offers a practical, real-world training manual for mid-level managers. Most organizations direct the majority of their development resources to the C-suite, but still expect their mid-level managers to attract, engage, retain, and develop talent; but successfully juggling everyday duties while maintaining team performance and leading around roadblocks leaves little room for management planning. Managing to Make a Difference offers the solution in the form of tools, techniques, and practical strategy for a high-performing team.

“I LOVED the book. I’m not easily impressed by leadership or management books because I’ve read so many and they all tend to say the same things. BUT! I took several notes and made highlights on EVERY page. Extremely well done and profound and practical and entertaining…all at the same time. In fact, it should be mandatory reading for every manager in the world.” – Bryan Williams, D.M.
