Summary
    The Effective Manager: Transforming People, Processes, and Organizations is a compilation of research, articles, and book chapters from a wide range of experts in the field of management and leadership. The book focuses on management theory and organizational systems with an emphasis on personal development through building relationships and teams. The text discusses practical applications for effective management skills.

    The text is separated into five sections, which provide readers with an overview of what experts and practitioners of management and organizational leadership believe creates successful managers. Students learn about organizational theory, scientific management, organizational systems, leadership and team building, and the future of managing behaviors. The book stresses the amount of work that needs to take place inwardly, to achieve outward success.

    The Effective Manager seeks to create a mindset of continuous learning. It encourages readers to recognize that influencing and motivating others is a continuous work. The work begins with understanding oneself as a prerequisite to building effective relationships. The book is an excellent choice for courses in management, leadership, organizational theory, and behavioral science.
