Good People, Bad Managers

Samuel A. Culbert, a UCLA management professor and frequent author, examines the systemic nature of management problems and their roots in cultural habits. Reading the first two parts of his manual may make you cringe at your own behavior – or at your boss’s – but these difficult sections provide a meaningful set up and context for Culbert’s recommendations for positive change. The not-so-subtle title calls for initiating a meaningful, productive conversation with your boss when you’re ready to implement the changes Culbert suggests. getAbstract recommends Culbert’s intelligent, workable method to HR managers seeking to improve corporate morale, culture and internal communications; to self-aware leaders and to young professionals intent on moving up the managerial chain.
