The First-Time Manager, Sixth Edition
IN THIS SUMMARY
When an individual is first promoted to a managerial position, it is frequently because they have proven themselves to be a valuable employee. The skills required for management, however, are significantly different from those which are central to being an effective individual contributor. This transition from a narrowly focused role that requires technical expertise to a team-focused role that is less straightforward requires a new skill set, new techniques, and an altered awareness. In The First-Time Manager, Sixth Edition, Loren B. Belker, Jim McCormick, and Gary S. Topchik provide new managers with a comprehensive reference guide and roadmap for the challenges unique to becoming a first-time manager.
