The Seven Sides of the Perfect Manager

By Ralf Riekehof, Alexander Mutafoff
Verlag Moderne Industrie
Note: This title is only available in German.

The seven sides are: Self-management, giving a vision – future, strategic management, motivation, communication, coaching, and building teams. For every “side,” the book gives tips on theoretical background information (“excursus”) without overwhelming the reader. The more important active consideration of the material is made easier for the reader due to the varying perspectives – “Reflection,” “Application,” “Exercise,” “Check list,“ “Competency,” and “Case Study.”

This type of presentation makes it easier to transfer the material into everyday business and gives an opportunity to reflect on oneself. If you quickly skim through the pages, you will notice a “key to success” for each of the topics: recommendations for action which sometimes might seem too much like a “recipe” but can certainly offer ideas for discussion.

Summary: Not a philosophical book, not a highly scientific treatise, but a book meant for working, practicing, and trying out new ideas.

In this book, experienced sales trainers condense their insights from training hundreds of salespeople in all industries – from beginners to seasoned professionals – into a comprehensive work focused on aspects with practical relevance. The reader will receive many practical tips and ideas as well as background information on the key topics of sales.
