Publisher's Summary

Practical advice for making the shift to your first leadership position.

The number of people who will become first-time supervisors will likely grow in the next 10 years, as Baby Boomers retire. Perhaps the most challenging leadership experience anyone will face isn't one at the top, but their first promotion to leadership. They must deal with the change and uncertainty that comes with a new job, requiring new skills, and they've been promoted from peer to leader. While the audiobook addresses the needs of any manager, supervisor, or leader, it pulls from the best leadership and management thinking, and puts the focus on the difficulties that new leaders experience.

  • Includes practical information for new managers who must supervise friends and former peers
  • Authors are expert consultants who work with leaders at all levels
  • Shows how to adopt the mindset of a leader, including: communicating change, giving feedback, coaching employees, leading productive teams, and achieving goals

This much-needed audiobook can help new leaders get beyond the stress and fear to focus on becoming the most effective leader they can be - starting right now.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Misleading Title

This was a huge waste of time. The book is essentially the narrorator reading the chapter name, a one paragraph explanation of the chapter title, has a worthless "bonus bite", points you to the Bud to Boss website for further explanation (and up-sell), or directs you to Google for more information.

There is literally one 5-minute chapter on how to manage prior colleagues or 'buds'.
