Product Overview

Many people who have been very successful throughout their careers suddenly stumble when they assume a leadership position. The knowledge, skills, and work habits that enabled them to succeed in their previous jobs may not apply to leading. Although confident in his own field, the new leader may feel unprepared to handle typical management issues of under-performers, budgets, and departmental strife. Having always been a top performer, the new leader may be frustrated at suddenly having her success depend on the actions of her staff. The Emerging Leader is a valuable primer for the manager who wants to develop effective teamwork. Dean Tjosvold and Mary M. Tjosvold offer an action-oriented, research-based plan for learning to analyze situations, promote cooperation, develop productive relationships, and learn from mistakes - essential for success as a leader. They provide practical on-the-job advice, brief sections on psychology and organizational behavior that explain the theory behind their advice, and an extended workplace example that traces a new manager as he masters his first position as a team leader. Readers will learn how to handle common management hurdles such as budget cuts, terminations, conflict within and among departments, reorganizations, and cooperation with bosses and peers. Whether one is leading office workers, sales representatives, health care workers, lawyers, or any other type of team, The Emerging Leader is a must read for beginning the climb up the corporate ladder.
