Becoming a Manager : how new managers master the challenges of leadership - Linda A. Hill
Call Number: HF 5384 .H55 2003
ISBN: 1591391822
Publication Date: 2003-06-01
New managers must learn how to lead others rather than do the work themselves, to win trust and respect, to motivate, and to strike the right balance between delegation and control. It is a transition many fail to make. This book traces the experiences of nineteen new managers over the course of their first year in a managerial capacity. Reveals the complexity of the transition and analyzes the expectations of the managers, their subordinates, and their superiors. New managers describe how they reframed their understanding of their roles and responsibilities, how they learned to build effective work relationships, how and when they used individual and organizational resources, and how they learned to cope with the inevitable stresses of the transformation. They describe what it was like to take on a new identity. Two themes emerge: first the transition from individual contributor to manager is a profound psychological adjustment--a transformation; second, the process of becoming a manager is primarily one of learning from experience. Through trial and error, observation and interpretation, the new managers learned what it took to become effective business leaders.

Broken Ladders : managerial careers in the new economy - Paul Osterman (Editor)
Call Number: HD 38.2 .B74 1996
ISBN: 0195093534
Publication Date: 1996-09-05
Broken Ladders: Managerial Careers in the New Economy provides the first comprehensive view of how the careers of managers in organizations are changing. Broken Ladders reports on the employment security, advancement prospects, skills, and wages of managers in a wide range of firms and industries. These cases show that one myth--that the number of managers is declining--is wrong. But the job tenure of middle managers is more precarious. They can no longer expect steady promotions up the ladder, nor can they expect life-time employment with the same firm. New organizational designs demand new skills from managers and Broken Ladders describes what these are. On another front, managerial pay has not declined at the same rate as other workers. However, the pay gap between senior and middle managers has widened. Given job insecurity and growing pay inequality firms confront a difficult dilemma: how to maintain the commitment of their managers at the same time that the employers are reducing their commitment to their employees. Broken Ladders will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of human resources, labor economics, career development, and organizational behavior. It will also be important reading for managers and strategic planners who have to take account of the changing nature of employment.

Career Barriers - Manuel London
Call Number: HF 5381 .L6558 1998
ISBN: 0805825797
Publication Date: 1997-09-01
This volume's goal is to help readers understand how people react to career barriers and how people develop constructive ways of coping with them. Drawing on original cases and data from interviews with people who faced different types of career barriers, the author describes how people react to, and make sense of, unfortunate events in their lives - and career barriers when they occur. He considers how and why some people cope constructively while others don't, and explores how resilience and support from others help get us through tough times and emerge with a sense of renewal and career growth. He suggests how we can manage career barriers and prepare for - or even prevent - career barriers through foresight, planning and education. These methods also suggest what managers and organizations should do to help their employees who are or may soon be facing career barriers.

Nonstop Networking: how to improve your life, luck, and career - Andrea Nierenberg
Call Number: HD 69 .S8 N54 2002
ISBN: 1892123924
Publication Date: 2002-09-16
Does the word "networking" make you cringe? Maybe that is why many shy away from the very skill that can help them personally and professionally. In Nonstop Networking author and personal marketing consultant, Andrea Nierenberg, reveals unique and easy-to-use strategies for linking-up with people in order to achieve mutual personal and professional goals. Based on five simple steps, Andrea s system is different from other networking techniques in that it focuses on comfortable and familiar techniques for building relationships and not on handing out business cards and asking for referrals. Readers will discover positive ways to network anywhere, any time and the secret of how to build relationships that will improve their life, luck, and career. Learn twelve techniques to use when approaching a room full of strangers, master eight sure-fire communications skills, discover the types of people you need in your network (and that may already be a part of your circle of contacts.) Are you shy or introverted? Learn networking techniques that capitalize on your natural abilities. Are you anxious about keeping track of all your contacts? Andrea presents an elegantly simple system for organizing and staying in touch with everyone in your network. Easy to read with many examples of personal success stories throughout, Nonstop Networking is a must have for recent graduates, job seekers, career changers, consultants, entrepreneurs, or anyone with a personal or professional goal to achieve.REVIEWS Andrea Nierenberg, author of Nonstop Networking: How to Improve Your Life, Luck and Career, offers these tips to revelers: * Keep your shirt on. It's OK to loosen a tie or kick off heels. But skin-tight and skin-baring fashions are no-nos for women. Guys, keep everything buttoned and zipped. * Limit libations. Nothing spells a bad review like a-l-c-o-h-o-l. * Ho, ho, ho, it's almost review time. Make sure you say hello to your boss, his/her boss (who approves your raise) and colleagues you haven't seen for a while. * Bring your significant other if possible. It's the No. 1 way to stay out of trouble. * Opt for early retirement. Leave while the night is young.Molly Woulfe, Northwest Indiana Times, 2004/12"Why waste time on the road? Build business relationships while waiting at the airport, on the plane, or at hotel check-in, suggests Andrea Nierenberg, author of 'Nonstop Networking.' "Successful Meetings, Successful Meetings, 2005/01/01"Networking to find a job is increasingly hard work, so it is easy to understand the appeal of landing a job interview while standing in line for a movie or over a steam table at lunch time. But for Andrea R. Nierenberg, president of the Nierenberg Group, a Manhattan marketing consultancy, taking advantage of any chance meeting is a form of networking. Networking is a state of mind, said Ms. Nierenberg, author of Nonstop Networking: How to Improve Your Life, Luck and Career and the forthcoming Million Dollar Networking. "Coeli Carr, The New York Times, 2005/03/13"You've got the social aspect of networking figured out. You've got functions on the calendar, business cards in hand and referrals to make. But at some point, you need to organize your contacts to make the most of your efforts, says Andrea Nierenberg, author of Nonstop Networking. "The Courier Post (Camden, NJ), The Courier Post (Camden, NJ), 2005/04/21"Networking is simply an overused and poorly understood term for exercising good people skills and building good relationships. It isn't something to be whipped out when you need a favor. It's like flossing your teeth, says Andrea Nierenberg, a New York business-development consultant and author of Nonstop Networking.' You can't do it once and expect it to work. You have to do it consistently to get results. "Perri Capell, The Wall Street Journal s College Journal, 2005/05"
