A must have for incoming managers.

This book offered great insight and set my expectations for my upcoming managerial post. It may be long and you may have to listen to it more than once but it definitely is a well spent time. Concepts are easy to grasp and focuses on leadership as the foundation of proper management. A must have not just for incoming managers like myself but also for experienced executives who need to refresh their management and leadership style.
