As a manager, making tough calls is part of the job, but the hardest decisions are the gray-area situations in which your judgment – and sometimes even your humanity – is tested.
In “Managing in the Gray: Five Timeless Questions for Resolving Your Toughest Problems at Work,” author Joseph Badaracco offers
practical – and sometimes even radical – ways to resolve these problems. Picking up where conventional tools of analysis leave off, this book provides tools for judgment in the form of five questions. By asking these questions, the reader is able to broaden his or her thinking, sharpen his or her judgment, and develop a fresh perspective.
The questions can be used as a framework on your own or with others on your team to help cut through complexities, understand critical trade-offs, and develop workable solutions for even the grayest issues.
“Managing in the Gray” is available at www.800ceoread.com for $28.
