Gabriel Ginebra author of Managing Incompetence, will share his thoughts and some tips from his book, which was recently translated and published in English by ASTD.

"The great deeds of mankind were not accomplished by a handful of geniuses, but by a bunch of incompetent people. Albeit, incompetent people with a bit of luck, a bit of coordination, and a bit of management. The difference has much to do with how people are managed," says Ginbera.

He wants us to know and understand the true definition of who and what we need to manage. Competence actually manages itself; incompetence needs management.

"You think you are surrounded by incompetent people. It's true. But you must know from the start - this is my twofold approach in this story - that if you deem more than a quarter of the people around you as incompetent, then you are the most incompetent of them all."

Join Ginebra for an eye-opening and humorous look at managing.
