This review is from: The Next Level: What Insiders Know About Executive Success (Hardcover)
I appreciate this book as someone that has excelled at the functional level, but struggled to get to the supervisory level. This book gives concrete suggestions about how to transition from being an employee to being a leader.
It is constuctive in that it points out how stengths at one level can be weaknesses or obstacles at "the Next Level" and then offers a path to "pick up" new behaviors and "let go" others as part of a self-development strategy.
The book also has a handy referenece at the end where you can look up a challenge and it refers you to the pages that address that specific aspect of management.
However, the book is so well-written and readable that you will proabably enjoy reading it in order.
The framework as well as the specific suggestions are original and substantiated with research and great examples. Mr. Eblin is an executive coach and this book has a serier of great "executive coaching" lessons for a fraction of what a personal session might cost. Well worth it!
