From the Author:

I wrote "What To Do When You become The Boss" for two reasons:

  1. Firstly, after years of being a manager and consultant, I was keen to pass on some of the helpful tips I'd learnt over the years to new managers.
  2. Secondly, I'd tried using a number of management texts with clients and found many of them lacking in the practical "How to" aspects of managing.
I've aimed the book at the new manager, principally someone moving into their first managerial role (although the content would be useful for even experienced managers), because I've found that new managers miss out when it comes to induction and training in their new role.  I've tried to put in all the really good stuff that I have learned over the years as a manager, trainer and consultant.

Unlike many books, this one allows the new manager to access the topics at their own pace and according to their own particular learning style.  There's no need to read it from cover to cover.

Actual cases show how various concepts, models, techniques and strategies have been successfully implemented.  Each chapter has both a:
  • "How to implement straight away" checklist and
  • "Action plans for the longer term"
so the new manager can take action immediately and also plan for the future.

"What To Do When You Become The Boss" covers the full range of skills required of the new manager (in fact any manager) - leading, managing, motivating, team building, decision making, delegating, recruiting (and firing), managing performance, meetings, influencing others and managing boss and self.

Having now sold over 45,000 copies, been published in three languages, and received over 50 Amazon reviews, I'm extremely pleased that so many managers are getting some real benefits from the tips I've been able to pass on.

Check out this "Revised Edition" which now includes chapters on:
* "How to get started without making ripples"
* "How to manage the social media"
* "How to manage change"
* "Virtual and remote teams"

"Intuitive, informative, and insightful discussions of what to do (and what not) when you become the boss.  As I read, I was reminded of how important it is to understand the dynamics when managing your team, your boss, your peers and last but not least, yourself.  This book is packed with excellent advice.  It's an invaluable resource for those about to join the league of managers. Actually, it's an invaluable resource for everyone in management."

"A fabulous book!  Whatever the industry or profession, this book is invaluable to the new manager. Working in a foreign country tasked with capacity building is challenging and it's not always easy to focus on the training and transfer of skills and knowledge.  This book has made me realise the importance of empowering people and provided me with useful insights on motivating those I supervise and work with.  Structured according to the reader's learning style, this book engages the reader and covers relevant topics in an easy to read format."

"I have been working with Bob for some time now and his advice has always been insightful, practical and effective.  His book is just as good!  I wish I had a copy of it when I first became a manager 10 years ago.  I would have done much better in many areas. Get a copy and keep it close to you in the office.  It will be one of your best investments, ever."
 
Luciano Almeida de Jesus, Head of Risk Management & Performance Measurement, ING Investment Management Europe, The Hague, The Netherlands
