|Managing to Make a Difference is a book for mid-level managers. The majority of business books today are aimed at the C-suite - where most companies invest the majority of their development resources. The pain point this book would address are mid-level managers who do not receive a lot of guidance about how to excel as managers and leaders and are under tremendous pressure to do a variety of things in an organization beyond the development of those they lead. At the end of the day, they are caught in the middle - literally the sandwich generation of corporate America. This book will help readers build highly engaged, high-performing teams through practical tools and techniques at a variety of issues that present themselves - all with a coherent philosophy and substantiated research.
