The key to any successful business is in the management and leadership style they choose to adopt.
There is a misconception that leaders manage people to gain success. This concept is proven untrue in
John Routlet’s The Supervision Solution: Manage Performance Not People.
What makes John Roulet’s approach so fresh and appealing is that he introduces a new way to learn
to be a supervisor, where he encourages a way to manage performance not people. This one book provides
enough practical knowledge, guidance, and scenarios to direct anyone in a management or supervisory role
in successfully structuring their department to achieve the maximum amount of success.
The Supervision Solution: Manage Performance Not People should be required reading for all
new Supervisors and Managers. In my day job, I am a front line Supervisor for a local government
contractor. It is essential that I keep my skills updated on all new management concepts that are
in existence. I found this book to be exactly what I have been searching for to help me learn what I
need to be a better Supervisor.
The chapters on "The Best Possible Performance Appraisal," "Motivating Employees Who Do Not Have
To Be Motivated," and "Resolving Job Performance Problems" were exceptional. I found that I was
re-reading these chapters to help me deal with current situations that I am currently facing. These
chapters alone make this book worth any price that you may have paid.
For any new supervisor or individual who holds a management position THIS is the book you
need to ensure you read to sharpen your management saw. I feel that The Supervision Solution:
Manage Performance Not People could help every manager and supervisor acquire the knowledge
needed to understand themselves and the people they are responsible for supervising. Very highly
