"First Breal All the Rules" is an adventure in management, and a book I would highly recommend. Being a teacher and counsellor in business management with a lifetime of experience, I can assure you that no matter how much education, training or experience you may have in business, every day is a new learning experience. Or, at least it should be if you want to be successful. The further up the ladder you advance, the tougher the challenge becomes to reach the top. If you are fortunate enough to make the climb, maintaining that position and continuing to grow, requires a whole other set of skills and abilities. The top competitors are always at your heels.
This book is an excellent learning tool for both managers and employees. Managers may very well pick up some surprising pointers on how they could improve their management style, and there must always be room for improvement in everyone's life if we are to achieve our full potential. Employees may develop a better understanding of why managers and supervisors expect what they do from you, which could ultimately make you a better employee as you work your way up the corporate ladder. This book definitely contains "food for thought" and words of wisdom from some very interesting perspectives.

The four keys of success: Select for talent, Define the right outcomes, Focus on strengths, Find the right fit.
Le management basé sur les forces ("strengths") et non sur les faiblesses ("weaknesses").
Ce livre recherche une nouvelle façon de gérer le personnel / les collègues / les participants à un projet.
Il montre que les meilleurs managers ont en commun le fait qu'ils se démarquent du commun, recherchent les talents, les propulsent vers le succès, et leur trouvent la meilleure assignation.
Beaucoup d'idées à méditer, sur nos propres forces et faiblesses, et sur celles des autres, pour une meilleure productivité globale.
