It doesn’t matter what level of the organization your new leadership role is in - from project supervisor to CEO - every promotion brings a period of transition, the need for new skills and a set of new expectations, challenges and opportunities. Just because you’ve been successful in one leadership role, you can’t assume that your old strategy will automatically succeed in your new role. It probably won’t. Take an analytical approach. Diagnose the situation and adapt your strategy to it. Michael Watkins’ book tells you exactly how. If you will soon begin - or have already begun - a new leadership role, this book is an invaluable resource to help you map out your strategy, get on your boss’s good side and accelerate your transition. Watkins provides fundamental information for anyone who wants to become a leader and stay on top, because he teaches you how to make a successful transition when your time comes. getAbstract recommends this excellent book to any leader at any level who is going through or embarking on a period of transition into a new role. Here’s how to help make the transition more successful, faster and easier – on your staff, your boss and yourself.
