Lessons from a Natural Manager – new careers podcast episode
post # 307 — February 12, 2007 — a General post
As a business school professor and as a consultant, it has been my job to teach people how to be effective managers, and how to build successful businesses. Dyelry (Jerry) Labbate, the manager of the exercise gym I attend in downtown Boston, seems to have figured the art of managing out on his own.
My latest podcast episode, A Natural Manager, explores crucial lessons on effective management from the Jerry’s intuitive managerial approach.
All these lessons apply in other workplaces, even among highly paid people with advanced degrees in glamorous professions (though they donâ€™t always like to admit it).
