Great Information

It actually took me a while to get past the title of this book to begin reading it. Once I did what I found was solid, not secret as the title would have us expect, direction, suggestions and counsel on how to develop yourself as a new member of management. experienced leaders will tell you this is an ongoing learning process. For first time supervisors, managers and leaders, knowing how to do it right is a key stepping stone on the road to success.

I really enjoyed the book.

As a began listeningreading this I was able to relate different sections to my everyday life and job as a Supervisor. I actually ordered this book after I had the opportunity to borrow it from a mentor through my work and then decided that I wanted to keep a copy in my home to be able to go back to when I needed it. The way that the book talks about Leadership and the avenue's a person needs to take to be successful is great and I believe it is very true through all the training and mentoring that I have had in the past 4 years. I would recommend it to others.

A great book for all leaders

The book excedes muy espectations. I think is aprópiate for new and old leaders. Great insights. very helpful. A leader cannot be too self-focused It’s also essential for new leaders and those who supervise new leaders, so there’s a common understanding of the changes required to be an outstanding supervisor or manager on Day 1.

Narration good..

I have been a company driver for 20 years. I recently decided, after reaching the point of hating my job, career, and life for that matter, to pursue my dream of being self-employed. I didn't know where to get started.
