Management Bites is the perfect book for anyone in a role that manages people or if you’re preparing to step into people management. It has chapters on how to set goals, give feedback, work through disciplinary procedures, deal with sick or annual leave issues and other employment law. It’s packed with exercises to complete as well as real life stories relating to each topic. Rather than being a text book - it’s down to earth and talks about real life.
First published by HarperCollins in 2009, Management Bites became a New Zealand best seller, and the second edition was published in 2015. The UK and Australian versions will be available in 2017.
About the Author
Author Angela Atkins had worked in HR for many years and hadn’t been able to find a practical, easy to read guide for the managers she advised. So she wrote it! She’d found herself that managing a team was challenging and wanted to share her own learning’s as well as the stories of the hundreds of managers that she had worked with.
Angela is also the author of Employment Bites, about how to deliver great HR, and Training Bites, on how to design training programmes for your business as well as the HR Career Guide.
