Why you should read Leadership Transitions

Organizational consultant Richard Elsner and his colleagues investigated the forces that shape new leaders. Separately, consultant Bridget Farrands interviewed more than 50 freshly promoted senior leaders across various industries and identified their common experiences. In this book, they unite their ideas. getAbstract recommends this useful compendium of advice about leadership progression, even if it may prove somewhat academic for the general reader. The authors explain the “tensions of transition” and cite worthy tools for senior managers and executives to use as they move into higher roles.
