   Sage advice for any manager, nonprofit or otherwise
I'm a big fan of Alison's Blog Ask A Manager. I bought her book because I am moving from an individual contributor to a management role and this book is filled with great advice, especially for hiring and developing people. Those are two areas I need to work on, and have been incredibly useful. The most important section is Part 3 -- Managing Yourself, which is something I wish more managers would do. It makes you think about how you should adapt and be successful in your new role. Although the book is geared more towards nonprofit organizations, but you will also have the same problems elsewhere.

   Great idea's that could be used in the public sector as well.
This book contains practical and useful advice. I work in the public sector and while this book is geared towards nonprofits, many of its core points can be applied universality. I have already used some of the direction from the interview section and I hope to use the organizational tips soon. For this resource, thank you.
