Charlottesville, Vir.—Genius One, Inc. has announced the publication of “Stop Telling… Start Leading! The Art of Managing People by Asking Questions” (ISBN 0-9774056-1-3) by Frank D. Kanu, a business management book that provides leadership skills and training.
Kanu has based his management system on the methods of Socrates, who taught his students by asking questions. It worked in the fifth century B.C. and Kanu says the method is as valid today as it was then.
“Frank is the master of asking questions. Frank will change you and make you grow, some of the change you will like, other parts you will not like. But change you he will and change is good, you can only grow from change, good or bad,” says Thomas Power chairman at Ecademy.com.
“Stop Telling… Start Leading” is designed to be used as a work book. It offers many open-ended questions to the manager, offering ways to evaluate and find the right course of action that leads to the desired goal. Kanu teaches managers to answer tough, pointed questions that force them to come to terms with their goals and manage more effectively with their team.
Kanu teaches management through motivation, following the advice of Lee Iacocca who said, “Management is nothing more than motivating other people.” His book contains insights not found in management seminars, workshops, or training courses.
Kanu offers instruction through seven steps that he details in his book.
- What Is Management?
- Know the Sins
- Take Responsibility
- What Do You Pay?
- Make Your Team Work
- Change, Growth and Trust
- Bring the Fun to Work
“Here we finally have a book that makes you stop, ask questions about yourself, your qualifications and habits as a manager and leader. Further, it makes you enumerate these qualifications and habits, thereby providing the basis for personal growth,” said Mark Amtower of Partner, Amtower & Company and author of “Government Marketing Best Practices.”
