Managing Right for the First Time: New Book by David C. Baker


A Field Guide For First Time Managers and Managers Who Want to Manage Better

NASHVILLE (July 6, 2010), First time managers--or managers who want to manage better--now can find out how from business consultant David C. Baker in his new book, “Managing Right For the First Time,” (2010, Rockbench Publishing Corp., $24.95). Baker is president and founder of business consultancy ReCourses ( and “Managing Right for the First Time” emerged from his experience advising over 600 companies and interviewing more than 10,000 employees specifically about management and management issues.

“Baker knows what he’s talking about! Every chapter of “Managing Right for the First Time” is chock full of wisdom that will benefit all managers--newbies as well as seasoned vets. Though I’ve been managing people for more than twenty years, there was plenty for me to learn. But I’m especially eager to pass the book along to younger managers in our firm. They’ll have the opportunity to learn from a master without having to make all the mistakes for themselves. I’ve read a fair number of leadership and management books over the years. Many of them simply don’t ring true to what I see in the workplace. David Baker gets it right--management is an utterly human endeavor, fraught with messiness and complications. There’s no seven-step program to becoming the perfect manager. Rather, as in any human endeavor, we gain expertise over time, especially as we have opportunity to watch and listen to those who practice the craft with skill. This book is very affordable way to do just that: learn from a master-teacher.” --Jim Kinney, editor, Baker Academic Publishing

Baker says, “Managing is individual, but the core principles are not necessarily intuitive. Getting the core principles right provides a framework that allows you to figure the rest out--safely--over time. The book is designed to help managers better understand their role and provides practical steps they can take to become a better manager and leader--while still being themselves.”
