Summary
Becoming a leader for the first time is one of the biggest and most stressful psychological and emotional shifts you will ever experience. You're suddenly given an important job that has almost nothing in common with what you've been trained to do. It's as though, at the age of sixteen, your parents said zYou ride a bike so well you might as well take the cary and handed you the keys. Cool, but what now? William Gentry feels your pain. He was happy as a senior research scientist at the Center for Creative Leadershipand then he was promoted to his first leadership role. So this book doesn't just draw on his years of studying and training new leadersit's personal. And his singular insight? New leaders must flip their scripts. We all have scripts that tell us how things are supposed to be. As a worker, your script is all about zmey: your individual contribution. But when you become a boss, you must focus on your group: flip that script from zmey to zwe.y This means flipping pretty much everything elseyour mindset, your skillset, your work relationships, your zdo it ally attitude, your view of the organization, and more. -- Goodreads
