These secrets come mostly from managers in the “guts” of an organization not the corner office. Most noteworthy, the middle managers always have a more significant effect on business results than any CEO. Therefore, their performance is a critical success factor in a company.

Guess what?  Any supervisor, team leader, manager or executive can learn the strategies. But, it requires change, and diligence to become a lifelong learner.
