    Does what it says on the tin - "If you read nothing else on managing people, read these definitive articles". I would say that these are especially catered towards newer managers, since they are on topics that more experienced managers would have already come across, such as how people learn, how to work together with your boss or overcoming biases. My favourite one was "Leadership that Gets Results", the one that the book actually opens with, which categorises the different approaches a manager Does what it says on the tin - "If you read nothing else on managing people, read these definitive articles". I would say that these are especially catered towards newer managers, since they are on topics that more experienced managers would have already come across, such as how people learn, how to work together with your boss or overcoming biases. My favourite one was "Leadership that Gets Results", the one that the book actually opens with, which categorises the different approaches a manager may use, and when each of these approaches will generate positive or negative results. I have found that I do have 3 predominant styles, and the article recommends having 4 in your repertoire. For me, one that I would like to make better use of would be the authoritative one, which refers to inspiring your team towards a goal. I also found the article on "What Great Leaders Do" very useful, underlining how to bring the best out of people, as well as the article "Fair Process", which sheds light on why even a successful outcome may be deemed as unsatisfactory when people weren't included in the decision-making process.

    2-3 articles are good. Not all. Could have been a better selection. Have read superior collections from HBR, like HBR 10 essential reads.

    “There is one quality that sets truly great managers apart from the rest: They discover what is unique about each person and then capitalize on it.” “Individuals are most likely to trust and cooperate freely with systems—whether they themselves win or lose by those systems—when fair process is observed.” Managing people is fraught with challenges—even if you're a seasoned manager.

"The Discipline of Teams," and "Managing Your Boss." I could list numerous quotes from this powerful little book - indeed, much of my book has been highlighted with things I want to remember and easily go back to. Each article presented new ideas while simultaneously complementing the other articles perfectly. I was surprised that many of the articles that were written in the early ninties or eighties continue to speak truth and provide advice for managers today. This was a great read that I'll continue to return to on my journey of managing people.

    Good compilation of articles over managing people in a corporate setting. The writing and topics covered seem to be geared toward management neophytes like myself, and having very little knowledge on the subject, I found the ideas enlightening. I particularly appreciated the article on the hygiene-motivation theory, as well as those by Goleman, and Gabarro and Kotter. The rest were skim-worthy and a bit redundant but still helpful if the goal is to familiarize oneself with the culture of the bus Good compilation of articles over managing people in a corporate setting.

    A great collection of chapters. Reading thru these chapters is like attending a management class with the masters like Daniel Goleman, Chris Argyris and Mahzarin Banaji. I enjoyed the chapters on "Saving your rookie managers" and "How (un)ethical are you?". These articles forced me to rethink common pitfalls and how I approach them. The best part is that many of these bookish reads can be put to use in real world environment right away. Many of them work. But, as the collection points out, busin A great collection of chapters.

    To be honest, before reading this book, I felt that I am invincible and I am an amazing manager... However, after reading this book, I found out that I am lacking a lot of things which are needed to be an amazing manager. I am a new manager and I have a lot of things that I need to learn and communication is one of the key areas I need to learn to be an effective manager. I consider myself an affiliative manager with tendency of being authoritative in some instances.

    This is a solid little management handbook with lots of good tips, lessons, and vignettes. The book lives up to its "Must Read" moniker, and I dare say should be read by all new managers. Some of these articles were written decades ago but are still relevant today, which speaks to the timeless nature of management principles. Even the most seasoned managers have room to improve, and so I thank HBR for curating the best essays for inclusion in this small, but really good book.

    This book touched upon many important concepts in organizational behavior including motivation, conflict, culture, group development and performance, innovation, and leadership. I believe this book has provided a few helpful tools that I may need to use in the future. The book was enjoyable to me because the authors often challenged my existing assumptions and allowed me to reflect upon my own proficiency at managing others.

    Some good reads in here if you're a coach and leader type or aspiring to be. There some blah as well. Find what's relevant and focus on those topics. I am always pining for more articles on leading and coaching remote colleagues as someone in consulting space. Furthermore, there is also a dearth of content for leading and coaching those that aren't working on the same thing you are. We work for different clients often in completely different industry sectors. Book idea? Some good reads in here if you're a coach and leader type or aspiring to be. There some blah as well.

    It was okay - one of the articles resonated with me to the point I wanted to find the digital copy and find email it to Human Resources and an old Manager, but that's probably a story for another time. Some of the articles didn't apply (but that's a me thing) and I didn't quite find them helpful. One or two were REALLY outdated, even for a 2011 book and honestly it feels like the book needs to be updated because of it, but it is what it is.

    Some of the articles are too long and repetitive. I found that reading the 'Idea In Brief' and 'Idea In Practice' boxes first is a good way to get the gist of the full article. Lessons contained within this book are worthy of the reader's attention, even if you don't manage people in a professional capacity. Some of the articles are too long and repetitive.

    I recommend reading this book while taking refresher managing classes. Even though it comprises essays written quite a while ago, they stand the test of time, regarding business skills people managing others (or have this as a goal) should be aware of, developing, and brushing up on as they go through their careers.

    The articles within are interesting and helpful. Not all have the same quality or usability (at least for me). I believe this book is a touch base since managing people can have subtleties, but at its core it remains the same (some of the articles are over 30 years but are still valid nowadays). Overall I recommend this book.

    I read this straight through because someone loaned it to me; this isn't the kind of book you read that way and I found it tedious. As a result, I look back and realize I didn't really take much away from it. These books are best for a library -- "I need to learn about X, oh here is an article on it...great!"

    4.5 stars, rounding up. I found the principles in this book to be really helpful. The first story seemed to drag on, but for the most part each one after that I was able to get into and apply to current work situations. I couldn’t believe that many of the articles were so old but still relevant. Can’t wait to read more HBR books.

    Super helpful. The best articles, in my judgment, were four: "Leadership that Gets Results," "Saving your Rookie Managers from Themselves," "Fair Process: Managing in the Knowledge Economy," and "Teaching Smart People How to Learn." I wish I'd read these a long time ago. Super helpful.

I read the first 5 articles - the first 3 were really good and the other 2 were just meh and really, I just skimmed through the rest of the articles because I think they weren't really that good.

    Particularly enjoyed the article titled “What Great Managers Do.” Basic premise: use peoples’ strengths for the betterment of the company. Don’t focus on roles, focus on associates’ character traits and skills that will enable your company’a mission fulfillment.

    I knew that is different leadership types but once you recognize in which one you are, is a lot better in order to get along with everyone. You not only learn about you, but also how to bring your team to the north that you want to reach. Very good book.

    Being a collection of articles, there's not a "story" like in a traditional books. Some of the articles were very interesting, others were not applicable to my situation. But overall, it was interesting and recommended for managers. Being a collection of articles, there's not a "story" like in a traditional books.
