Love the book!
Layout is pleasing to the eye as you read.
Found the content to be helpful and I related to it.
Brought his own personal experiences in and used well known professionals as well.
I purchased copies for my management team as well.
I bought copies for my employees.
This is a great guideline for new leaders – whether you have the position yet or not. Not only should current senior leadership read the book but also take the time to encourage their direct reports to as well.
“Many people think leadership is about rank, power, and privilege. Marines, however, maintain that true leadership is the willingness to place others’ needs above your own.”
I like this book so much because Dr. Hoff’s philosophy on leadership so closely matches my own. I’ve often told my teams, “when the spotlight comes on I will step out of the way, but if it turns out the light is really the headlights of an oncoming bus - they’ll have to go through me first.”
Though much of Naphtali’s examples stem from his years in academia, the tenets he teaches can be translated to any number of industries. I’ll be sending a copy to my adult children, one of whom is a Software Engineer, the other a Data Scientist.

Dr. Hoff draws on current industry trends and his own rich leadership expertise to deliver a book that has actionable insights and strategies for organizational leaders. While marketed to “the new boss,” I believe that this book is equally valuable for veteran and aspiring leaders, too.
As a chief executive myself, I heartily recommend this book for new CEOs, their boards, and for anyone who wishes to gain insight into the complex arenas of executive onboarding and successful leadership.
As a last note, I would suggest that "Becoming the New Boss" should be a must-read for CEO search committees. This book highlights the challenges, opportunities, and pitfalls of integrating new leaders within organizations. I believe that reading this book will help search committees gain a better tactical understanding of these realities and will lead them to make more informed hiring decisions.
Kudos to Dr. Hoff on delivering a fun-to-read book of enduring value.

Naphtali’s insights into the difference between a leader’s and a manager’s responsibilities is the key to success for every business..
When each person understands their role, there is no overlapping or arguing but healthy outcome for their company.
Naphtali’s insights in this book helping leaders achieve their goals smoothly and successfully are the fundamental for every businesses success.
I’m amazed how clear and simple this book is to read while sharing such depth and priceless information in a simplified manner.
