Mastering the Obvious: A Handbook for Home, Work, and School peels back the layers of complexity that obscure the obvious and proven principles that lie at the heart of useful management theory. Grounded in five decades’ worth of insights as a consultant, author Richard C. Gillespie shares his refreshing and clear explanations of the proven principles that lead to success in individuals’ professional and personal lives.
In ten chapters, Mastering the Obvious outlines those principles and explains the ways to apply them in various contexts. These approaches will benefit people in various settings: families at home; executives and employees in the work place; and teachers and students in academic institutions. The chapters use brief and clear discussions to outline their main messages, bulleted lists to highlight the key points to remember, and space for taking notes.
If you have felt like you are only standing in place and marking time, while you desire to identify your destination and make your way toward it, then Mastering the Obvious: A Handbook for Home, Work, and School should give you the principles to serve as your compass. With this orientation, you will learn how to achieve success worth celebrating.
