Please Don’t Just Do What I Tell You, Do What Needs To Be Done

Posted on January 1, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author

Please Don’t Just Do What I Tell You, Do What Needs To Be Done by Bob Nelson is a management book that projects a universal request by every manager or supervisor in the world: initiative. Nelson offers employees as well as employers valuable insight into becoming more productive through being proactive, which, in effect, benefits the entire company.

Nelson suggests ways to be more effective in completing tasks, and how to create a mindset that makes the outcome more rewarding. This is a no-holds-barred approach to self-motivation and improvement. Nelson believes that employees lose interest in their work because they lack motivation, which stems from stagnation or the task becomes mundane and meaningless. His book shows readers that by thinking a project through, asking questions and formulating a plan of execution can make a project more satisfying.

Nelson’s approach is basic and relatively easy to grasp. His book is a great tool to assist in encouraging employees who seem bored or dissatisfied with their job, and it shows how initiative can improve the way employees are seen by management. It illustrates how people can use their intelligence and instill pride in themselves.

I strongly recommend this book as an employee motivational tool. Every human resources department would benefit from having this book on hand.
