It is also an introduction to the fundamental management skills that you will need to master throughout this new phase in your career, including how to: * Communicate effectively; * Delegate; * Understand finance and accounting; * Manage people; * Analyse your organization's future; * Realize your own potential. Both a practical manual and desktop aid, ""The First-Time Manager"" is a book to be read and then referred back to whenever you need support.

How to WIN fills an important gap in the current leadership literature in that it gets "down and dirty" with the very real issues that first-time managers face in today's workplace. These new leaders don't craft long-term strategies or issue inspiring missives to hundreds of eager troops. Neither do they testify before congressional committees nor appear as public spokespersons for this or that glamorous product. They are the managers who strive each day, often with limited resources, to meet the high production standards set by those in the c-suite. From how to manage relationships with direct reports (who used to be that manager's peers), to how to delegate tasks, to how to build effective teams and better manage one's time, How to WIN takes the reader into the daily exchanges between a new manager and her veteran coach, as they explore the various roles all managers are expected to play. Dr. Dave Day has been a student of management for over 48 years as a manager, college faculty member, and management consultant/coach. For the past 30 years, his "first love" has been the training and development of newly appointed first-time managers. In recent years, that interest has been expanded to include working with participants in talent management groups. His articles on management topics have appeared in Personnel, Personnel Journal, Training & Development Journal, Journal of Management Education, and Supervisory Management. His articles have been adopted by such organizations as the American Management Association, the US Office of Personnel Management, the American Institute of CPAs, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the F. D. Roosevelt Hospital in Czechoslovakia, and the Instituto de Medicina in Havana, Cuba. He is the author of Teaching Your 1st Management Course (South- Western College Publishing) designed to assist doctoral level students in Management in teaching college level Management courses. Dr. John Lough, career consultant and executive coach, has served a

Traditional time management revolved mainly around to-do lists and delegating. The New Time Manager is concerned far more with factors like developing good working relationships and establishing a healthy lifestyle.

Managing Large Teams is borne out of the author’s twenty-five plus years of experience of navigating multiple scenarios, transitioning from an individual contributor to becoming a first-time manager to later helming teams as a CXO that expanded across North America, Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia. Brimming with the wisdom and experiences of Indian and global CXOs, and Stanford LEAD alumni, the book tackles subjects such as handling multicultural and multi-locational teams, building a strong trustworthy culture of skip-level engagements and the oft-discussed phenomenon of executive isolation at work. Get your hands on this reservoir of knowledge on leadership, organization development and management practices for the present and future generations of performers.
