Overview

Whether in the corporate world or in the government, managing is about accountability and results.

Managing government employees presents unique challenges. Government managers may feel that stringent and convoluted regulations mean they "can’t do that" Some others may use that perception as a crutch. But the truth for all of them is, yes, they can "do that" -- and they’d better. "That" means managing employees as proactively and decisively as their corporate counterparts, and holding their staffs, teams, and departments accountable for productivity and results. Managing Government Employees offers dozens of techniques for meeting the challenges and stressful situations supervisers face on a daily basis. Major topics include how to:

* get maximum dedication and productivity from employees

* improve results of poor performers and discipline or fire them when necessary

* deal with union and EEO issues

* cut through the red tape of government employment systems

For managers frustrated by government bureaucracy, this book lets them know they have more power than they may think.
