Endorsements for Your First Leadership Job
Steve Sutton
Steve SuttonDirector, Regional Delivery Manager / US Country Manager, Volvo Group University
“I had been a manager for several years, and I was missing foundational conversation skills in my leadership style. I really wish I had been exposed to them early in my leadership career. For more than 10 years now, I have put the new skills to work every day. They helped me achieve my success.”
Rebecca L. Ray, Ph.D.
Rebecca L. Ray, Ph.D.Executive Vice President, Knowledge Organization, Human Capital Practice Lead, The Conference Board
“Few career transitions are as difficult as becoming a first-time leader; few books provide such a clear, detailed blueprint to being successful. Rich and Tacy have distilled decades of wisdom in an effort to make great leaders less rare.”
Eric Schurenberg
Eric SchurenbergMedia President and Editor-in-Chief, Inc. Magazine
“Scores of leadership books cross my desk every year, but this has to be the most practical, detailed, and truly useful one I’ve seen in a long, long time. Byham and Wellins definitely know what works in developing leaders in the real world, and that shows through clearly in the book’s practical tips, all-too-true examples, and lucid organization. And no, it’s not just for first-timers.”
