Reviews for What Do I Do When I Get There? A New Manager’s Guidebook
As a Senior Manager it is easy to forget how you got to the corner office, lose your edge and just need something new to fire you up and to inspire the next generation of managers. This book can really help you get off to a positive start after you have unpacked all the dusty textbooks and manuals.
The “Chapter Summaries” make it easy to develop a continuing stream of strategies to turn your managers into the leaders you need. This book dares to tell you what not to do, (like over-manage) while bringing out the best in your workforce.
Middle managers feeling trapped and frustrated? I have used this book as a tool to help them find the good in their people and organization and pump up the positive, productive work environment. Take a look at a little book with a BIG message. I suggest you go ahead and pick a pair.
You can read it in under an hour and it will stick with you the rest of your career. It’s dense with common sense about the boss business. Collins learned it all the hard way but gives it to you easy in this great little book. A copy ought to come with every promotion to the management ranks.
I have read and re-read this little book 4 times now and have gleaned new gems of wisdom each time. The principles apply to everything from organizing volunteers to managing a household with refreshing common sense and without complicated formulas. Thank you!!!
Unbelievable!!! I credit this down to earth author with the increased success of my business. Easy to read, understand and implement his ideas.
This is a book every person who enters the workforce needs to read. If you want to understand upper management or advance to it this will guide you through the process to become successful. I couldn’t put this book down and just wish I would have had a book like this to read 40 years ago.
