    Transitions are a critical time for leaders. In fact, most agree that moving into a new role is the biggest challenge a manager will face. While transitions offer a chance to start fresh and make needed changes in an organization, they also place leaders in a position of acute vulnerability. Missteps made during the crucial first three months in a new role can jeopardize or even derail your success.

    With vital performance and career lessons and ideas for how to apply them, it is a must-listen for managers at every level. The greatest managers in the world seem to have little in common. They differ in sex, age, and race. They employ vastly different styles and focus on different goals. Yet, despite their differences, great managers share one common trait: They do not hesitate to break virtually every rule held sacred by conventional wisdom.

    This is a summary of Josh Kaufman's The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business. Getting an MBA is an expensive choice - one almost impossible to justify, regardless of the state of the economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether.

    This is a summary of Dr. Spencer Johnson's book Who Moved My Cheese?. It takes a look at the different tools needed to deal with changes - something that all of us have encountered at some time and that makes everyone either uncomfortable, nervous, or both. Most of us are wary of change because we feel we may have no control with regard to the how or the when. As change happens either to us or due to us, the most important thing is our attitude when dealing with it.

It promotes more openness, productivity, and communication through shared and organized learning, resulting in more progress for the team.

    This is a summary of Patrick M. Lencioni's The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business. There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No. Author Patrick Lencioni argues that the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are.

    After 12 years of research, author and hugely influential thought-leader Dr. Brené Brown exposes and challenges the deep-seated myths we have about vulnerability as something negative that needs to be overcome, and instead argues that being vulnerable puts us in a position of strength and power. If we want to live a life free of shame, we need to learn how to appreciate and love what we have without any conditions or clauses, and we need to be able to rely on our inborn worthiness.
