Helpful Advice for First-Time Managers


Managing (Right) the First Time: A Field Guide For First Time Managers and Managers Who Want to Manage Better, by David C. Baker

NASHVILLE (August 8, 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.

“We first hired David 10 years ago, and we’ve been big fans of his thought leadership in the forms of consulting sessions, articles, events, and various conversations since that time. When I started this book I expected it would be mostly a review of what we’ve already learned from David, but I was happy to find that this book was chock-full of new and instantly applicable advice.

“Most business books are read once and put on the shelf, where the remain forevermore. “Managing Right” is much more of a reference guide than a one-pass book. The book is exceptionally well written, is a pleasurable and easy read, and is broken up into easily scannable vignettes which make the book easy to pick up again and again.

I had my first job as a manager over 12 years ago. I sure wish I could have read this back then, but I’m glad I have it now..” –Mark O’Brien, Newfangled

“Managing Right For the First Time,” can be purchased through or in bulk directly from the publisher. Read more about the book at, or more about the author at
