As part of the International Leadership Association Conference series, I invited Bill to discuss his new book focusing on helping new leaders and the teams they lead succeed.
Bill talks about:
• Common mistakes new leaders make
• The unique challenges faced by first time managers, such as the transition from “BFF” to “boss”
• How first time managers can motivate their teams, while maintaining the relationships they had before the promotion
• What support first time managers actually need, and how organizations can provide it
This interview and the associated book provide a great foundation for helping first time managers.
