Hi, I am looking for a good book to give to my store manager on how to manage employees and how to be a good leader. He is a bright kid but I just think that he needs some more pointers on the business side of things. So if any of you have read a book like that please let me know, thanks!

One book I was FORCED to read back in the day was “The One Minute Manager”. It was actually a good book. Moral: always catch somebody doing something right. Hope this helps. -J_r0kk

the one minute manager is a great book to read. I used when I was a GM.

I’d suggest anything by the Covey Foundation.

First Things First

7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The 8th Habit

I would recommend the cds versus a book. Average drive time from home to work is 15-20 mins. Perfect for listening to and from work. It breaks it up and allows you to think about the 20mins you just listened to rather than plowing through the entire program.

One of the best managers I worked for said that you should use your car as a ‘mobile classroom’.
