Over the course of the year, I published 52 columns on a variety of management topics inspired by questions from readers, important business trends, and core management values and activities. Then, at year end, I organized them in a way to help you answer the following questions. Ok, you were promoted to manager. Now what? What is your management style and is it effective? How can you successfully lead your team? How do you deal with difficult employees? How do you effectively communicate with others? What is the hardest part about hiring new people? As a manager, what processes do you need to kw, and why? How do you deal with issues such as privacy, gossip and office jokes?
