Managing is truly a gift and skill set that is not easy “to learn” just by taking a class or two in the subject. Managing effectively has to be intentional and comes from practicing it!

Ron Harris provided me the privilege of reviewing the manuscript of this book prior to publication. Concepts of Managing is a practical guide to managing people from a tremendous person who spent his entire career as an excellent leader, manager, director, and motivator in several types of companies and in different operations roles. As a management & industrial engineering consultant, I marveled at how Ron went about managing people and operations using a tactful, caring but effective approach.

This is great for anyone who manages people in any industry! It strikes me as the best “what they didn’t teach me in business school” book that I’ve read. The style of using short vignette stories enables one to pick it up, read some, then pick it up later, and read more at your own pace in this increasingly “instantaneous response” world.

I highly recommend this to those starting out as new supervisors or managers all the way up to C-Level executives who need a refresher on managing people and with humility! Thanks for this gem, Ron Harris!
