This book is a master-class in managing yourself and others, combining all of Adairâ€™s thought and writing on creativity and innovation, communication and presentation skills, time management and personal development, teambuilding, motivation and leadership. In learning how to manage both yourself and others you will build a team that is motivated, creative and high-performing. New ideas are essential for industry; they are the lifeblood of successful organizations. Creative and innovative thinking, the means by which ideas are born and nurtured, are not products of clearly defined steps but of varied forms of encouragement which can be found within this title. There are many books on communication. However, few writers share John Adairâ€™s wide experience of management and leadership development in both business and military spheres, which adds a rarely found depth and insight to hard-edged practical techniques. Managers and leaders must be effective team builders and motivators to be able to achieve their business aims and get the best out of people. The skills needed in both these areas should be practiced and improved upon on a constant basis to ensure they help build and maintain effective and efficient teams.
