“I recently moved into an assistant branch manager role. Although I had some leadership experience, I found the tips and tools in this book to be tremendously helpful. They were my safety blanket to ensure that I got off on the right foot with my team and my manager. This book is a must-read for anyone who was recently promoted and wants to hit the ground running.
Rebecca L. Ray, Ph.D.

“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.”
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.”
