Organizational Leadership Expert Ed Parr Tells How to Identify and Maximize Your Management Potential in this New Release Published by Dog Ear Publishing

Indianapolis, IN, April 28, 2010 --( Great managers are not produced by years of job experience and management degree programs. Instead, they are born to lead. Starting from this bold idea, Dog Ear Publishing author Ed Parr sets out to address two critical challenges businesses and governments face: How to improve enterprise competitiveness and how to improve managerial effectiveness. Natural Born Manager outlines how managers – and those hoping to become managers – can capitalize on human aptitudes, put best practices into place and achieve remarkable success. If you’ve ever wrestled with complex social and organizational problems, clarifying and pursuing your life’s passion or learning to manage effectively, this book is for you.

Parr, a certified management accountant and 35-year veteran of organizational leadership, aims to help readers improve enterprise competitiveness by training managers how to lead without self-deception, identify managers who have the potential for great leadership, screen managers for behaviors that run counter to organizational goals, and recruit managers who have the required leadership aptitudes. Likewise, Parr tackles ways to boost managerial effectiveness through such suggestions as using a transition checklist to minimize problem-plagued project starts, setting effective performance goals and inspiring employees to reach them, and identifying problem employees and resolving their issues within weeks instead of months or years.

Anyone who reads this book will gain a new perspective on management, management’s role in society and how their own innate abilities can empower success in the workplace and beyond. In addition to maximizing their own managerial abilities, readers who purchase the book through will help fund the Johnson O’Connor Research Foundation, Inc. This not-for-profit foundation, which studies the science of aptitude measurement and leveraging them for career success, receives $1.00 from each book purchased through the website.
