Most new managers start with little or no training to prepare them for the transition ahead. One day they are showing up to work to run a machine, sell a product or provide a service and then the next day they are promoted to their first management position. Maybe they have been promoted because they are the best worker, maybe because they have some administrative ability or maybe it's because they get along with people. But regardless of the reason managing a team of people is very different from being an individual contributor.There are many organizations, post-secondary and private firms that offer training for managers after they have been promoted, this book will provide the new or aspiring manager with a jump start on the realities of management. Focusing on areas that typically aren't explored during formal learning activities at colleges and universities. It is an inside look at how to prepare yourself and increase your ability to be successful leader of people.

Grant Armstrong firmly believes and operates from two perspectives that he developed a number of years ago, one is that 'leadership is the single most important factor in the success or failure of any organization' and second, that 'there is no greater waste than unused human potential'. Dr. Armstrong holds several degrees including a doctorate in education from the university of Toronto. He is also a certified professional coach. He has spent a majority of his career working with, coaching and studying leadership in organizations in the public, private and post-secondary educational sectors.
