There are hundreds of books on finding jobs, and dozens on hiring employees -- all guides to operating in the job market.
But the best bosses and employees rarely use the traditional job market. No surprise there, at least not to sophisticated recruiters or job hunters.
The Gifted Boss – Revised Edition
After more than a decade, including ten foreign editions and 16 printing, William Morrow/HarperCollins is bringing out a Revised Edition. The conversation that is the heart of the book remains the same, but Dale has added a "quick start" guide to help readers implement the book's ideas, as well as a Discussion Guide to make it easy to build a program for managers around the book.
Amazon has the book at a special price of $14.00 -- click here to order.

"Let's say we have two managers who, on the same day, take over identical teams. Both are bright and eager to excel. One has read all the management books on motivation; the other has just this book."
"In six months, the first manager will have increased productivity by 10 percent, maybe 20 percent. The second boss, using the great employees only system, will have increased productivity by over 100 percent, while putting in one-third fewer hours at the office."
"Along the way, the great employees only leader will have encountered less resistance, made more friends, learned more, and had far more fun."
