Be The Boss Everyone Wants to Work For: A Guide For New Leaders

Becoming a manager is one of the most stressful and challenging transitions in any career. Why do half or more new managers quickly flame out? They’re working from an old script for success. As an individual, your script is about “me.” But when you become a manager, everything about your job needs to change—your skillset, the nature of your work relationships, your understanding of what “work” is, and how you see yourself and your organization. You have to operate from a brand new script, one that’s about “we”—ensuring collective success.

Filled with practical advice and lessons, and backed by extensive research, this book lays out the art, science, and practice behind learning and leading as a first-time manager. Through first-hand accounts, stories, and other examples drawn from the experiences of first-time managers, the book’s practical, actionable content helps readers flip the old script, and write and live their new script.
