Endorsements for Your First Leadership Job
Pam Benoit
Pam BenoitExecutive Vice President and Provost, Ohio University
“There are so many leadership books and so little time for new leaders, but if there is one book to squeeze in, it would be Your First Leadership Job. It is a combination of important insights, theory, and research on leadership that follows up with a section that emphasizes mastering the skills. This section is filled with no-nonsense, practical information and examples punctuated with thoughtful questions and checklists that encourage self-reflection for the individual interested in taking on the challenge of being a leader for a living.”
Elke Thamm
Elke ThammGroup Head of Talent, FTSE 50 Organisation
“A comprehensive and practical guide for anyone who is taking on their first leadership role, complete with tailored advice for women stepping into leadership. A must-read for any newly promoted people manager and a great best practise guide for all experienced people managers who are committed to lifelong learning.”
Ester Martinez
Ester MartinezCEO and Editor-in-Chief, People Matters
“Leaders are made by hard work and determination—the price one pays to be able to make a difference to people and society. Like all big goals, it starts with one single step. Your First Leadership Job is that one first step for you and builds the foundation of global leadership.
