If you are reading this book, you have probably been told to read it by your manager and your manager has probably begun practicing a radical new philosophy of managing. This new philosophy, “Managing from the Heart,” is designed to teach managers how to engineer a work environment in which employees are provided the opportunity to acquire the necessary tools, interaction, and instruction which will propel the employee to success. If you are fortunate enough to work for a manager who “Manages from the Heart,” you will be assisted, instructed, mentored, and counseled through a process which will nurture growth toward unrealized potential.
This book is written for you, the employee, and is designed to create the awareness and understanding necessary to take full advantage of this environment opportunity. The employee who embraces this philosophy will begin a journey of growth in which they will develop “personal power,” allowing the individual to succeed at whatever they attempt.
By working in conjunction with their manager and coworkers, this employee will discover that their success, their coworker’s success, the success of their manager, the success of their department, and the success of the business for which they work are all interconnected – when one succeeds the other succeeds; when one stumbles, the other bleeds. The employee will learn how to grow individuality while, at the same time, sharing allegiance to something bigger than himself.
