In this video clip, Melanie Sodtka, certified professional career and executive coach and co-owner of Your Latitude, outlines how managers can get more time back by learning to deal with people issues effectively.

But tackling the bottom line first and not focusing on people can cause conflict and turnover. Focus on people first and learn how your team members handle tasks to manage them more effectively.
