The 80/20 Manager offers managers 10 Ways that they can enjoy becoming great managers. Here are the book’s closing words:
The secret of being an 80/20 manager is to realize sky-high aspirations through intelligence and acute observation instead of through toil and trouble. Like angels, we can soar and lift humanity while scarcely flapping our wings. But unless we care deeply about specific results, and unless our ambition is boundless, we will never even take off.
Extraordinary results are possible with ordinary effort – if we really care about achieving those results. The virtue of this book is that it is immensely practical.
The genius of the 80/20 Principle is that it is counter-intuitive. The genius of Richard Koch is that he makes the counter-intuitive accessible.
Read this book and you will enjoy it. Live this book and you will find it is a game-changer.

Richard is one of my favorite business authors and his latest book is perfect for any business person who has people to manage. What I love about this book is that Richard has a totally different viewpoint about getting great business results. His core principle is that you can achieve amazing business results through other people with surprisingly little effort. And in this book he gives you ten proven strategies to create amazing business results through people with far less effort and work than you are probably using right now. Put this book on your ‘must read’ list.
