With a trifecta of research conducted at the world-famous Center for Creative Leadership, personal stories from people at various points on the leadership journey, and a wonderfully entertaining writing style, this book has something for leaders at every level. Moving from individual contributor to manager is not just a leap in level. It's a categorically different job. This book does a great job of highlighting the science supporting why managers need to shift their focus from self to others and provides great anecdotes and practical examples of how to become successful in the move.
Adding this to the list of books for my MBA students to check out. Most leaders don't get formal leadership training until 42 or later if ever -- so leadership learning is survival of the fittest. Bill's passion for helping new leaders be successful from the get go boosts leader confidence and reduces the chaos for seasoned leaders with full plates. This books is well-researched, easy to digest and totally on point. It's a must read guide for first time leaders and a nice refresher for emerging leaders with some spots to polish.
It's my go to reading for new leaders. One person found this helpful. Unlike most leadership books, new leaders and their organizations should trust the guidance Dr. Gentry offers in this book. It is based on actual science. It is based on Dr. Gentry's actual experience as a new leader. It is based on his actual experience training hundreds of new leaders. Very few authors of leadership books have this type of background and expertise.
Gentry someone worth listening to. This book is a must have for anyone who wishes to lead and manage others effectively!! Bill Gentry distills years of rigorous academic research and wisdom into this book and makes it accessible to practitioner in a fun, enjoyable manner. One day, we'll look upon this book as a "classic" that helps to enhance the quality of leadership and management in our organizations.

Let me tell you — the business and management section of most bookstores is bleak. However, this book stood out as one that seemed less distressing and focused on money.
Pollak has built her career providing advice and coaching to others, and with this book she is targeting the millennial generation, as they are the ones starting to step into leadership roles for the first time. Now, I am technically Generation X, but a lot of what she shares in this book still applies.
She starts with a history of business and management philosophies, which is a good place to find more books to read on this topic. The way she presents the information worked really well for me; when I finished reading it I went through and copied down all the parts I really wanted to remember into a book so I would follow up on the items. My only complaint is this one section, where she talks about outsourcing what you can. An intern should be learning about whatever field they are working in, so unless they are interning as a virtual assistant, suggesting people get one to hang curtains strikes me as inappropriate.

I was able to improve my skills quickly, practice them often, and now I feel much more confident as a grant writer. What would a leader do?

Treat the Annoyer as your teacher. Ask for help with a specific project, and then over time the relationship will grow organically. Aug 15, Ian rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a really great book. I got it from the library but its on my short list of books to buy and keep referencing back to. Seriously, I highly recommend reading this book. Despite the title - this isn't a book on being a Boss so much as the leadership fundamentals to exhibit before and after becoming the boss. And, while it is obviously targeted at Millennials, the author, Lindsey Pollak, gives strong and constant respect and reference to those who came before her and from which she builds muc This is a really great book.
And, while it is obviously targeted at Millennials, the author, Lindsey Pollak, gives strong and constant respect and reference to those who came before her and from which she builds much of her advice. The reason I really love this book is that it doesn't give a single strategy, broken into specific rules, and then harp on those for pages.

This book has probably 50 different recommendations, each one is valuable and fills a gap in the total picture of being a good leader. I've read a lot of books in this genre, and she passes on all of those best suggestions. There were very few pieces of this book that I didn't like. There was one sentence that flabbergasted me. One does not need to take time-of-day into consideration for those in the southern hemisphere. I'll be buying a copy and referencing it again later. The next generation of leaders and those already leading would do well to read and implement the guidance in this book.

Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders by Lindsey Pollak
Some statements might seem like common sense, but they are neatly put out for you to easily return to the book when you need guidance. Think of it in this way: Initially I had to take a few deep breaths because this book is brazenly self-promotional and, to my British sensibility, Pollak comes across as crowing, but as I settled in to her relentlessly positive tone the reading got easier. I think it's aimed at slightly less experienced managers than myself as an older millennial, there were sections that didn't teach me much but some suggestions and recommendations were less obvious but valuable.
I'll be reading through a couple of key chapters again Initially I had to take a few deep breaths because this book is brazenly self-promotional and, to my British sensibility, Pollak comes across as crowing, but as I settled in to her relentlessly positive tone the reading got easier. I'll be reading through a couple of key chapters again ahead of my next big challenge! Dec 30, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: My first job post-grad school was as a career counselor to undergrads, and I found Lindsey Pollak's book, blogs, and LinkedIn webinar to be super helpful in advising my students.
This was equally useful and I look forward to being able to implement some of her suggestions--I'll be a board member for the first time this year and I hope at some point to advise MSW students, so I know it will come in handy. Feb 28, Liang Gang Yu rated it really liked it. Good book for general tips becoming a manager or learning how to lead. It stands out in the field of leadership books with its neutral and positive tune, its coverage on all major aspects of taking on a leadership role in business world.
Recommend to anyone is developing leadership skills in general, a guide book to other books or reference to dive deeper in specific skills. Dec 09, Dvir Oren rated it it was ok. In order to be an effective leader, familiarize yourself with leadership fundamentals, such as how to manage employees, use the right networking skills and present yourself in the best way possible. A lot of focus on entrepreneurship and small business. A lot of leadership books have similar advice and this is surely no exception. Add to your list if you are under 35 and building leadership skills, or if you are over 35 and you're having some trouble connecting with the youngest people in your office.
Feb 17, Tiara rated it really liked it. This book is a great tool with a lot of good information. I would recommend it, especially to the milennials!
Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders
Feb 07, Nadine rated it it was amazing. Best management book I've read in a long while. Initially started reading as I have an interest in generation differences, and the author does provide wisdom in this area and impact on future leadership. Book includes very practical tips for those new to management - I will certainly recommend to all new leaders in my company and some Baby Boomers too, a different perspective can never hurt. Oct 06, Stefania Shaffer rated it it was amazing Shelves: In a series of female empowerment, I was reading one right after the other.
Somehow I lost my momentum and switched genres. Lindsey Pollak got me right back on track. This book is now dog-eared with many pages teaching digital literacy in the world of building a social media platform. Mar 15, Heather Mize rated it it was amazing. This book has lots of great and practical advice that you can use everyday.
There's no cheesy shtick here, it's just real world advice.
