Einstein is famous all over the world, as a super intelligent person, rather a great genius. Challenging & stressful changes are taking place in the world of business, due to highly talented persons using technology for obtaining super-results. The present day hi-tech persons have different approaches & responses. Their recruitment, management & retention is a challenge in itself. The authors call them Einsteins, due to their being high calibre people. In thirteen Chapters contained in three parts, this book discusses various matters like their recruiting, motivating, retaining, rewarding, communicating, leading, disciplining, mannerism, caring, growth, humour at work & facilitating etc. This book is based on research findings, & the discussions with many of the hi-tech workers, who also gave some ideas, examples & feedback. In the appendix, a list of resources has also been provided for the Einstein managers. The authors state that the old system of man-management & controlling, is not effective in dealing with such persons, for helping them in innovating with productivity & satisfaction, & being beneficial to their organizations. The book provides guide lines to the managers, for utilizing the suggestions given, for better management of the Einsteins.
The individual managers of the organizations are all different, so are all the Einsteins. The pattern of behaviour of such Einsteins, is also quite different. For getting the best out of the Einsteins for our organizations, the managers must be learners, listeners & facilitators. They must not indulge in unfairness, favouritism & politics in the organization. They must honestly understand their way of working, & the quality of their work. The author states that these Einsteins have some special points, like forming into teams, not liking to live on their own, their caring for newly recruited Einsteins, having an authority structure, forming small groups within bigger groups, wanting to avoid conflicts & following group norms of behaviour. In the opinion of the author, the present system of management by conventional managers, is ill- equipped in dealings with them. Einsteins also do not like authority, orders & directives from any body. Therefore, the managers must continuously learn & upgrade their knowledge & skills, through books, workshops & coaches etc. The managers themselves have also to find ways & means of adequately managing the Einsteins, so as to continuously improve their management, & get the best out of them. Probably, this is the first book of this type, specially aimed at managing of independent, high-tech & highly valued workers, for which the authors have also given some tips. It is a valuable, informative & practical guide book in this field, for managing such brilliant people, & also the people in general. It is specifically meant for the managers & leaders of such hi-tech talented persons, who have to manage them successfully.
