    Book details

Jack Welch, the legendary CEO of General Electric, described himself as “the world’s best paid human resource director”. Welch and other leaders of extraordinary successful companies over the past 30 years focused on one particular part of their business: the people. Unlike other assets, people have legs that enable them to walk, they go home at night, they have brains that enable independent thought, senses to make them aware, and have intangible feelings. But the way that they are managed impacts directly on the business’ bottom line like no other asset category. This book is a firm reminder of the value of people to any organisation. Great managers and leaders, at whatever level, are ones capable of driving performance and change through people. This book provides essential actions and behaviours to pursue (and those to avoid) for any manager who is seeking the path to great management and leadership.

"John Dembitz's new book bursts with energy. Drawing on decades of useful experience, Dembitz sets out some vigorous (and timeless) principles about the vital task of managing people." --Stefan Stern, former management columnist at the Financial Times, now director of strategy at PR firm, Edelman John Dembitz is currently nonexecutive chairman to a number of private and public quoted companies. Before that, he was a consultant at McKinsey & Co and CEO of the communications firm Valin Pollen.

Review Text

  • By Kevin Allen on September 3, 2012

    It's the people! is an incredibly insightful and thought-provoking read for anyone serious about managing and leading their organization to greater heights. Filled with practical tips on how to and when to act, which behaviours to adopt and those to avoid. John Dembitz's no nonsense approach of 'Do it, do it now' calls you to take action throughout. If you want to improve the way you drive performance and change through the people you manage and lead, I highly recommend you to read this book.
