Book Review - Dream Manager

The Dream Manager
Matthew Kelly
HF 5549 .K3494 2007

This book is perhaps inappropriately titled. Instead of being a list of qualities that a perfect manager might possess, it is instead an analysis of what makes employees happy and productive. Kelly asserts that what motivates employees most is knowing that they are working toward fulfilling their personal dreams. When their work life and personal dreams become aligned, Kelly argues, the workplace becomes dynamic, collaborative, and wildly successful.
