Despite their different styles and backgrounds, great managers don't hesitate to break virtually every rule held sacred by conventional wisdom. But most readers will be familiar with the unfortunate trend to promote employees until they reach their level of incompetence. From managers at Fortune 500 companies to those at small, entrepreneurial firms, the best managers excel at turning each employee's talents into high performance.

First, Break All the Rules, subtitled What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently (1999), is a self-help book authored by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman, about improving employee satisfaction. This is much more efficient because it keeps you from having to create a training plan that you must enforce.

First, Break All The Rules" by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman is a management guide that challenges traditional practices.i read the 99 edition, so i can't speak to the reviews saying it changed for the worse in the newer edition. What often gets in the way of achieving this is the conventional career path – a model of progress with many flaws.

Imagine you work with nurses that form emotional relationships with patients but who also get overwhelmed. This book had some sound advice as it focused on the four key principles all great managers know and practice: 1) select for talent, 2) define the right outcomes, 3) focus on strengths, and 4) encourage employees to find the right fit.However, the author argues that we are better off focusing on our strength through extensive surveys and in-depth interviews with the best managers. The other possible questions on pay, benefit and such are not significant differentiators in workplace strength so they are not included in the core 12.
