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.”
Tony Bingham
Tony BinghamPresident & CEO, Association for Talent Development (formerly ASTD)
“No one ever sets out to be a poor leader. But it’s that first leadership role that often sets the trajectory for how successful a leader will be. The authors have delivered a book, backed by excellent DDI research, that is packed with insights and actionable steps. It’s a must-read for those who are transitioning into a leadership role and who are committed to achieving excellence.”
Donna Porter
Donna PorterManager, Organizational Development and Learning, Whirlpool Corporation
“At Whirlpool, we put millennial new hire sales reps into a house together for 10 weeks and call it the “Real Whirled.” They learn technical skills about our products as well as the interaction skills in this book. Both are crucial to their success. Every new hire, whether a formal leader or not, should read this book.
