Successful People Management
In fact he finished the book only a very short time before he died, so this book is a fitting memorial to him and his life's work.
In his book Griffiths focuses on the key aspects of the managerial process, studying and examining the basic principles that underpin all management practices.
He also takes pains to stress the absolute importance of good interpersonal relationships between managers, colleagues and staff.
It also offers a wealth of advice that is both practicable and also highly valuable on what not to do, how not to behave, plus advice on what to do and how the good manager should behave.
He believes that the skilled manager should be able to promote positive responses from both colleagues and business clients. And in this book he gives you the tools to ensure that this happens.
Amongst the wide range of topics covered are sales skills, the art of negotiating, undertaking appraisals and meetings.
All topics are covered in a way that shows a depth of knowledge and understanding that adds much to the value of this important managerial work.
The book is subtitled "Life skills for managers" and amongst the key topis covered are body language, communication skills, team work, dealing with problematic staff members and much, much more, besides.
The book is illustrated with some amusing, but telling, cartoons by James Richardson, a freelance illustrator.
