Stop Telling...
Start Leading!

The Art of Managing People by Asking Questions

Hardcover book - signed from the Author.

In the fifth century B.C. the Greek philosopher Socrates perfected a method of teaching in which he would ask disarmingly simple questions that actually forced people to admit what they didn't know. As you read this book, you'll find a number of questions that follow the Socratic tradition. The reason? Today's managers need more than the predefined answers we might think are correct, but which seldom fit the problem at hand.

Stop Telling... Start Leading! is a work book and should be used as such. It offers many open-ended questions to the manager, offering ways to determine why something has gone off-center. Because every manager is different-the result of education, cultural background, ethnicity, etc.-offering predefined "one size fits all" answers can't do it any longer. Managers need to answer tough, pointed questions that will force them to come to terms with their goals. Once they do that, they can manage more effectively and more positively-which helps them and their team.

"Managing in 2005 is very different than managing in 1995...."
Derek J. Kottke
Managing in 2005 is very different than managing in 1995.  You are expected to do more with less; technology is part of managing, and people have more distractions at work (internet, cell phones, instant messaging). Frank takes a fresh look at how to manage and motivate teams.

"Frank’s book, Stop Telling... Start Leading!, adds valuable intellectual real estate...."
Mark Amtower; Partner, Amtower & Company
Frank’s book, Stop Telling... Start Leading!, adds valuable intellectual real estate to a field that is frequently populated by pontificators. 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. None of us is as good as we want to believe and we only grow when we ask the right questions about ourselves, and then act on the true answers. My recommendation is not simply to buy this book, but to read and use this book regularly.

"Frank is the master of asking questions. Frank will change you and make you grow,...."
Thomas Power
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.

"Eyeopener...."
I absolutly liked this book!
The author did a great job explaining what to do and HOW to do it.
It improved my own skills to train and guide employees on an individual basis. And that was beneficial to the whole company.
I highly recommend this book for anyone in a position of leadership, management and even employees with a vision.

"Questions...."
It is amazing how very simple Stop Telling Start Leading is to understand. The material is in no way inferior, but is presented in such a simple manner, you can read it in one sitting.

"Build Teams...."
(Full disclosure: this book contains a copy of the FunStandard.org which I maintain.) This book should be required reading for anyone thinking of managing or leading people, covering all the things you need to do to succeed, or, in other words, all of the things managers so often don’t think about resulting in unnecessary failure. I particularly liked the chapter on building teams, providing a framework for doing so to avoid a mistake that often dooms projects before the first meeting is even held -- haphazard assembly of individuals, mistaking "organization chart" for "team". This book’s distilled wisdom will make you a better manager in a very short time.
