The Secret to Mastering People Skills - Focus on One Skill at a Time

Typical hard-charging managers don't want to fool around. They want to get it all done ASAP.

But this doesn't work with improving people and leadership skills. The challenge is to change the way they've been doing something for decades. That means rewiring their brains, which people do all the time. But the process requires many, many repetitions of the best practice to make that happen.

So it's like athletes who work on improving multiple aspects of their game. If they try to improve everything at once, it will not only take longer, there's a good chance they'll fail. The key is to concentrate.
