Panic sets in. ‘Maybe I am one of those managers who has been promoted beyond their capabilities! Am I out of my depth? Where do I start?’ A thousand questions and a million doubts start to run through your mind.
Don’t panic. Help is at hand.
Bob Selden’s book: What to do when you become the boss. How new managers become successful managers will be your savior and your sanity.
It is common knowledge that most new managers get very little initial training about how to manage. Generally new managers are promoted or selected for the role because of their excellent technical or professional expertise. It is assumed therefore that they will also be expert at people management.
Selden’s book fills the “people management” learning gap for new managers. It is a complete “how to” for both managing and leading. Learn how to best manage your boss, your people and yourself in the all important first management role. The book covers hiring, motivating, delegating, influencing, managing time, firing – in fact everything you will need to know and learn about leading and managing, for example:

  • Do you know the vast difference between a manager and a leader?
  • How will you manage a team?
  • Do you understand how to manage upwards and sideways as well as downwards?
  • Can you effectively manage meetings?
  • And the $64,000 question – can you manage yourself?

Although written for the new manager, this book has so many tips, tools and techniques that it will be an invaluable resource for managers at all levels. So dip in, and achieve managerial greatness!
