WASHINGTON (4 April 2017) — Your people are your most important and versatile resource. They can be upgraded, renewed, rejuvenated and adapted to a wide variety of jobs. Equipped with the proper support, tools, information and leadership, they can make the difference in the global race for market share. Treat them poorly or ignore the value of their skills and you risk certain failure.

In April, IEEE-USA E-BOOKS is offering “Developing Your People — Commonsense Leadership in the Workplace — Volume 1: Key Skills Employees Will Need” free to IEEE members. In it, veteran engineer, educator and IEEE senior member Harry T. Roman explores commonsense ways to guide employees as they grow into their career.

“There’s no greater responsibility in the workplace than being a manager in charge of developing employees,” Roman writes.

The first in a three-volume series, this publication clarifies the distinctive realities of the information age, the types of skills required for career success, and how managers can create inspiring environments for their employees.

Now through15 May, IEEE members can get a free download of this e-book by going to: https://ieeeusa.org/product/developing-your-people-commonsense-leadership-in-the-workplace-vol-1/. Log in with your IEEE Web account, add the book to your cart and use promo code APRFREE17 at checkout.


IEEE-USA E-BOOKS seeks authors to write an individual e-book, or a series, on career guidance and development topics. If you have an idea you think will benefit members in a particular area of expertise, please email your proposal to IEEE-USA Publishing Manager Georgia C. Stelluto at g.stelluto@ieee.org.

IEEE-USA serves the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of nearly 190,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.
