Welcome to the exciting and challenging role of manager. You were a stellar team member, and now you’ve been rewarded—with a new position that requires a completely different set of skills. Unfortunately, far too many companies still use the “sink or swim” method of management training. This method assumes that everyone intuitively knows how to manage. They don’t.

Don’t risk your career on trial and error. Trust the clear, candid advice in The First-Time Manager and hit the ground running.
