Endorsements for Your First Leadership Job
Laurie Weingart
Laurie WeingartSenior Associate Dean of Education, Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business
“This book perfectly highlights the skills we know 21st-century MBAs need post-graduation that they don't necessarily learn in b-school. It’s an excellent resource for any new MBA looking to transition from individual contributor to an effective and influential frontline leader.”
Danny Kalman
Danny KalmanTalent Management Professional and ICF Accredited Coach
“One of the biggest HR challenges organisations face is to ensure that they have effective and motivated managers. Making the transition into a management role is a daunting one for most people and one for which they often get little support. There is no doubt in my mind that this book will have a global appeal and should be seen as a must-read for those taking on their first management role. I like that it takes a very practical approach with lots of case studies, check-lists, self-assessment questions, reflections, and exercises. I particularly like the chapter on establishing your own leadership brand by being authentic and trustworthy.”
Julie Blust
Julie BlustDirector of Learning Management, Cardinal Health
“Our customers’ needs are changing all the time, so our leaders must bring differentiated solutions to create real value for them and be empowered to do so. The catalyst leader concepts addressed in this book are the keys to making great leaders.
