Flip Your Script

You've been promoted to leadership--congratulations But it's nothing like your old job, is it? William Gentry says it's time to flip your script.

We all have mental scripts that tell us how the world works. Your old script was all about me standing out as an individual. But as a new leader, you need to flip your script from me to we and help the group you lead succeed. In this book, Gentry supports and coaches you to flip your script in six key areas. He offers actionable, practical, evidence-based advice and examples drawn from his research, his work with leaders, and his own failures and triumphs of becoming a new leader. Get started flipping your script and become the kind of boss everyone wants to work for.

   Great resource for new and evolving managers
Note the writer's note: I am a big fan of the work of Bill Gentry and wrote an endorsement for the book. From the world-famous Center for Creative Leadership comes a book full of personal stories from people at various points on the leadership journey, and a wonderfully entertaining writing style. Bill's leadership roadmap will help you become the boss that everyone wants to work for. I highly recommend this book to all of our clients and to my newsletter readers.
   Good book for anyone
The book outlines in a clear and concise manner how to hone one's management skill. The product is highly recommended.
   Worth your time
Great book, said Paul LiCalsi, co-founder of the consulting firm BDA. Note the subheading of this terrible parable in the "Persuasion" series, "The Sharpshooter with upper management written all over him."
   Systematic and applicable approaches for new leaders to flip the script
After I close the book,I can connect the pages. And I found the answer I had been seeking in the past months: a new leader.
   Awesome book, a tad redundant.
The book is a must-have for anyone who wants to learn how to meditate. It has truly helped me and gave me a new look at managing, he said. Although, the author is very repetitive with a few lines, this book is still a great read.
   So much potential, so much disappointment
I really wanted to read this book. I'm planning to promote a young IC into her first managerial role and went hunting for resources to support her - remembering my own very rough first experiences with management and total lack of training at the time. I picked up this book as a resource for her and thought maybe I'd learn some useful new insights as well, but alas, I'm halfway through and really struggling to finish, she said. It repeats banalities like, "There's no such thing as a bad haircut." However, the journal said the results were not fully defined and did not go into great detail.
   easy to digest and totally on point
Most leaders don't get formal leadership training until they are 42 or later, so leadership learning is survival of the fittest. Bill's passion for helping new leaders to succeed from the get-go boosts leader confidence and reduces the chaos for seasoned leaders with full plates. The books are well-researched, easy to digest and totally on point, said Dr. Goin. It's a must read for first time leaders and a nice refresher for emerging leaders with some spots to polish. It's my go to reading for new leaders, not just professors.
   Great book for first time managers
He said managers often complain about being "pushed around" by individual contributors. It's a completely different job. I'm adding this to the list of books for my MBA students to check out.
