Successful Business Book: “Manage It RIght!”

“… I think there are two distinguishing qualities of business books that make the successful ones stand out from all the rest: Quality of Concept and Quality of Writing… The core concept is what really differentiates a business book. Successful business books have strong single defining themes, executed in a compelling way. They are highly relevant and original… “It could even be a business book disguised as a novel, such as the inventive and creatively executed Manage it Right!by Carlos Zorea and Dee Zorea (Manage It Right! Press, 2014). Here, two management consultants weave a clever tale told as a first person narrative by Dennis, a manager who has been asked to turn around a failing business division. The story revolves around how Dennis works with his mentor, Chuck, a consultant with the deep knowledge and experience, to succeed. This could have been written as just another traditional business book, […] 5 stars

5 out of 5.0 stars: “A refreshing approach, highly recommended”

5.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing approach, highly recommended

A refreshing approach to a business management book. The book’s narrative style made it very real and easy for the reader to relate to Dennis and Chuck in their own lives. The attention to detail of business fundamentals and analysis was extremely helpful, it’s apparent Carlos and Dee Zorea are true professionals with a great deal of experience to share. I found the focus on time management and self-evaluation extremely insightful. I have already begun to implement positive change as a founding partner in a recent new business.

Is your bonus compensation system fair?

Have you ever observed that businesses owners and compensation decision-makers in organizations over-bonus too many of their employees, be they under-performers or equal-bonus recipients regardless of performance? This is unfair to both the employer and the employees. It is unfair to the employer if the company is paying too much in bonuses. Those bonus monies might be better invested in needed capital equipment, new personnel, new business initiatives, etc. It is unfair to the high-performing employees whose bonus compensation does not reflect their relative contribution compared to lesser-performing colleagues. Unfair bonus compensation is a morale killer — it tells high-performers that their contributions are not valued as much (relative to the lower performers receiving bonus) and it unnecessarily rewards the lower performers. Over time, higher-performers will seek other opportunities outside the company, and the company is left with over-bonused under-performers. So why do so many companies endure these scenarios and […] logo
