"Soft Skills for Strong Leaders is a book that any Manager or Leader can relate to! I wish this book had been available when I first started out as a Manager as it addresses all the key issues you face as well as the emotions you feel. There is such comfort in knowing that you are not alone in feeling the way you do when you have a new team to manage or a leadership position to enhance."
Your first management role can be a lonely and daunting place.
When you are good at what you do, the natural reward is promotion, and so having once been part of the team, you are now in charge of it. A new skill-set is required to manage and lead. You now need the ability to influence and engage others, and to deliver results through them. It is the lack of these soft skills, and the lack of emotional intelligence that can de-rail the most technically knowledgeable leader.
The good news is that you can learn these skills, through raising your self-awareness, and being more aware of those around you. This book takes you on a personal journey of discovery, as you prepare for leadership, embark on your first 100 days, and learn strategies to tackle the day-to-day challenges of leadership.
