News & Opinion: Swanson's Unwritten Rules of Management Arrives

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 5:40 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I got my copy of Bill Swanson's Unwritten Rules of Management in the mail yesterday. Business 2.0 ran it as a cover story in July and made a big deal about it (we made a deal about it too).

It is a 3-1/2" x 6", 74 page spiral bound book. It is all done in black and white. It is a very unassuming little book.

It makes it all that much more enjoyable when you read these pearls. This isn't Drucker or Buckingham. It is just a CEO giving you some simple thoughts to think about.

I just wanted to make sure you all knew that you can get your own copy and it is free.

I'll leave you with this nugget:

Unwritten Rule #6

Work for a boss
whom you can tell
it like it is.

Remember you
can't pick your
family, but you can
pick your boss.
