We’ve all heard management “nuggets” such as “make people come to you with solutions, nut just problems,” or “training time is wasted time,” or my favorite, “work smarter.” But how are you supposed to do that, especially if you may not have received any management training, or if your gut is telling you what you’re doing might not be working? Johanna Rothman explains that much of what you have heard about management is myth—based not on evidence, but on ideas dating from the Industrial Revolution. However, many myths have a germ of truth. If you would like to learn about these germs—the kinds of training that are useless and the kinds that are useful, how to really work smarter, how to help people develop solutions when they are stuck—the kind of management that empowers knowledge workers, join Johanna in exploding management myths.
