    These kinds of books usually tend to be boring and full of unnecessary paragraphs. However, I found "The Rules of Management" to be interesting. It consists of 107 rules with each rule summarised in 1.5 pages. The book is divided into two sections: 1) managing your team, 2) managing yourself. I liked the first section more. I would definitely go back to some rules on the book from time to time. These kinds of books usually tend to be boring and full of unnecessary paragraphs.

    Richard Templa in The Rules Of Management sets out to write the “unwritten” rules of management – the things they don’t teach in training courses and management textbooks. He suggests that readers will know all or most of the content already “Yes, it is all really bleeding obvious”, but many will not be applying the rules on a regular basis.

He suggests that readers will know all or most of the content already “Yes, it is all really bleeding obvious”, but many will not be applying the rules on a regular basis. Templa’s aim is to have the reader think a little more about each rule and ask “whether or not you do it”. The book is split into two parts; managing your team and managing you. By a stroke of good fortune, luck or really good planning, Templa comes up with exactly 100 Rules of Management – everything from “Hold effective meetings – no, really effective” (Rule 4) to “Don’t cut corners – you’ll get found out” (Rule 98). So, it has a very comprehensive coverage of everything to do with getting results through other people. Most of the 100 rules are valid and appropriate. Although I am not an avid fan of Templa’s conversational style in The Rules Of Management (that’s a personal observation, as other readers may find it quite appealing), my suggestion for improving the book is in “application” of the 100 rules. For example Rule 2 states “Know what a team is and how it works” and gives a brief summary of Belbin’s nine team roles. However, there is no explanation of how to identify these within a team nor how to use them. This is a major failing of the book. Templar has achieved his purpose – to write the unwritten rules of management. It’s also likely to get managers thinking about what they should do. If you’re looking for an easy to read book (most rules are covered in two pages or less) on identifying what’s required to be a manager, then this book maybe for you. However, if you want to find out how to apply many of the unwritten rules, then you’ll need to go to some of the referenced source material or other application type books.

    A witty and insightful book with nuggets of wisdom throughout. The author imparts crucial principles of management in reader friendly fashion. Highly recommended for those who want to improve on their managerial flair. “Head up, not head down” - Rule 62 💪🏻

    The second part of the book is what the business schools fail to teach.

It's simply 100 top tips for managers, each explained in one or two pages, not in fact very well structured except that the first third are things to do with your team and the rest are things to do with your own work habits.

    The Rules of Management is a simple set of rules for managers to follow, both with themselves and their teams. These 100 rules are simple rules you probably know already, but the book puts them in an interesting way, reminding you of them, and giving you some beautiful advice about management. I would recommend that anyone who is interested in the communication between a manager and an employee (that includes both, the manager AND the employee), to look at this book.

    Richard Templar makes everything easy through his rules. The Rules of management are great rules, especially, for the senior manager. They give value to who managing the team. Being a manager is an ongoing learning experience, andy he says: management is an art and science. It's totally right when he says, encourage people because the more responsibility you give, the more you trust them, the more praise them, the more you encourage them, the more they'll give you in return. Here I'd like to add Richard Templar makes everything easy through his rules. The Rules of management are great rules, especially, for the senior manager. They give value to who managing the team.

It's totally right when he says, encourage people because the more responsibility you give, the more you trust them, the more praise them, the more you encourage them, the more they'll give you in return. Here I'd like to add this also, nothing teaches us better than a better competitor, and why? How? What? The book involved of two parts, the first part about how to manage your team and the other about how to manage yourself. Use key, - Accept their limitation - Encourage people - Respect individual differences - Listen to ideas from others - Work hard - Be creative - Share what you know - Ask questions - Be aware of your responsibilities

    This book is all about Managing Team as a Manager, Managing ourselves. Book was divided in four sections, Team Management, Self Management, Rules for Entrepreneurs and each rule from rest of the books of Richard Templar. I was always curious about selecting a good team for me and I think I got the answers now. Every rule in this book consist of one and a half page. All rules are easy to understand and to the point and no complex terminology used. I can say Rules for Entrepreneurs is just awesome.

    For those thinking of reading this I'd first recommend 'The Rules Of Work' which is more of an overview of how to navigate working with people and within teams. The Rules of Management is for managing those teams, or especially helpful to those who want to excel within their team or department. A lot of it is common sense but good to go back to basics when you feel your team isn't as effective as it should be. It offers a chance for an attitude and perspective change, and an understanding that ev For those thinking of reading this I'd first recommend 'The Rules Of Work' which is more of an overview of how to navigate working with people and within teams.

    I really had a good time reading this book. In particular, I loved the way in which the author addresses the reader; you could literally hear him. While most of the rules are obvious and common-sense, the author exploits them by adding real example and sometimes even his personal experience. However, some rules towards the middle of the book sound alike and overlapping and others I hoped to find deeper elaboration. The last 10 rules for entrepreneurs are fab though.

    The Rules of Management provides concise, direct advice for people managers and avoids the new-age trappings common in many of today's popular self-improvement books. This book outlines 100 guiding principles, each described with a simple one or two-page explanation. Most could be easily dismissed as obvious or "common sense", yet if that were so we would not have such a proliferation of bad people managers in the workforce. Recommended reading for anyone in people management.

    For all those managing a team, this book will give you the perfect guidance to succeed and cope in any group. It doesn't matter if you are not a manager, but I am pretty sure you might want to be one in the future, get ready, set your goals and prepare your mind for the most difficult challenges to come. Clear and simple. For all those managing a team, this book will give you the perfect guidance to succeed and cope in any group.

    I would say that the book is more fit and valuable for those working in a super corporate world with strict internal rules. Otherwise, there were things I did not agreed on and things that offered some really great insights. 3/5 🌟

    The last of the Richard Templar books I recently attempted to read, abandoned and unhauled. I would consider revisiting this in the future, but I feel as though there are so many more management advice books which will offer advice with more substance.

    Management rules Good book for any person in management. Some rules are no brainer. This book is helpful to understand management and the expectations required from them. I enjoyed the philosophy of management to help my manager at work.

    A few good rules I hadn't really elaborated fully, but the vast majority are really 'bleeding obvious' and geared towards a US work culture I don't think translates particularly well here in the UK, or certainly not in 2021 by comparison to when it was written.

    I really enjoyed this. I guess I only didn't give it five stars as lots of things were more suited to industry than education. But that's not the author's fault. A great book.

    For me, reading this book was part of my plan this year to start reading more about the area that I want to develop in my working life - management skills. I don't think that I could have picked a better book to start with. Each rule is a short sharp insight into how to make yourself a better manager, written with humour and a catchy style. Was quite pleased to think that I currently do several of these anyway!

Was quite pleased to think that I currently do several of these anyway! It's also given me some development areas and also has helped me to make a life decision that has been causing me untold stress. Highly recommended whether you are a brand new manager or one that's been around for a few years. Would love some recommendations for managing public services as this seems to be a whole different ball game!
