A book not just for HR people but for ALL managers of PEOPLE!

Workplace statistics regarding the lack of management development in the workplace and their result on employee retention continue to go ineffectively addressed and therefore have remained practically unchanged. There is a critical need for consistent, effective Management Training particularly related to HR Compliance but especially the soft-skills required when managing the HUMAN element. Chapter by chapter, The Complete Manager Makeover provides practical and essential techniques to strengthen managerial skills for every stage of the employee life cycle including recruitment, on-boarding, performance management, retention, separation and so much more! It will enhance your managerial and leadership skills so you can:

• Ensure Regulatory Compliance to Reduce Risk of Litigation

• Communicate Confidently in Employee Relations Conversations

• Improve Employee Engagement, Productivity & Morale

The 10 Fundamental Philosophies offer sincere, practical and authentic viewpoints and value for every step of your career whether in a self-leadership position or an executive leadership capacity. The meaningful stories and experiences shared from the author’s 20-year hospitality career, will have you in shock, in tears, in awe and inspired to apply the practical techniques and wisdom offered in this career enriching book. In 2020, the author founded National Management Training Week to bring awareness to the need for better managerial training and preparedness in the workplace. She's made it her mission to provide all the elements necessary for effective management training focused on Transforming the Human in Human Resources®. The free Supplemental Toolkit provides additional materials and tools to help you manage your most important career asset, the people.
