Summary

Summary

"The hardcover edition of Peanut Butter and Jelly Management , which charmingly showed how being a good manager requires many of the same skills and qualities associated with being a good parent, resonated with thousands of readers. Now, Amacom presents the same wholesome package in paperback.

In the words of the authors, who are the proud parents of nine children, ""If we carefully listen and wax`tch children at home -- think about what they do and how we bring them up -- we can greatly improve our chances of being successful in leading adults in the workplace."" Much like kids, employees benefit from more personal involvement, caring, understanding, and attention.

Using stories from their own lives as parents, the authors demonstrate the important management lessons to be gleaned from parenting -- and give readers tips for applying the lessons to the workplace. Whimsical, touching, and heart-warming, but also practical, insightful, and direct, Peanut Butter and Jelly Management offers a fresh, unusual approach to leadership. Maybe father (or mother) really does know best."
