Transitioning to a new role can cause anxiety and stress for weeks, but this book by Michael Watkins helps diagnose your situations, define the core challenges, and design plans to create momentum which results in a more successful and comfortable transition.

Hundreds of thousands of leaders have benefited from this approach, which independent research has shown reduces time to break-even by as much as 40%.

The book includes case studies of failed transitions and clearly explains how to avoid them by preparing yourself, setting your boundaries, listening, learning, collaborating, creating alliances, securing early wins and managing yourself.

“Effective leaders strike the right balance between doing (making things happen) and being (observing and reflecting)”…

…this nugget from the book is equally true even when you’re not transitioning to a new role.

I’d definitely recommend this book.
