About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Surviving your promotion is laid out in 5 parts: Motivation, Mindset, Method, Measurement, and Momentum. Don't you love alliteration?
The meat of the book is in Part 3 where Katy maps out monthly strategies for success. Month one is get to know your internal team. Month two focuses on success strategies with customers and vendors. And finally, month three explains vision and goal setting.
Parts 4 and 5 are a surprising value to the book. She covers things like conducting performance reviews, hiring, dealing with conflict and more.
Finally, the end of the book has several pages of print and internet resources for those needing more information.
Katy communicates ideas like:
* Management is about people.
* Building relationships with your team enhances your ability to retain high performers.
* Don't expect to succeed as a manager like you did as an individual.
* Use the IROD framework for meetings. (Issues, Results, Options, Decisions)
I read this book in three settings and I'm glad it's on my shelf. I give it two thumbs up as a practical roadmap to success for newly promoted managers.
Some of the concepts include:
* motivating, leading and managing people - including hiring and dealing with conflict
* how to lead meetings effectively
* how to best leverage your time
* how to think like an owner
* building a vision and mission statement
* setting goals and evaluating results
* among other valuable insights
This book is packed with tools and resources that will help a new manager get started making a great impression quickly. From tactical execution to big picture thinking - this is a must have resource for any new manager. Also a great refresher for managers who have been doing it for a while.
