"A lifesaving guide for any new manager!" Marshall Goldsmith

As companies reorganize and reengineer, people are finding themselves tossed into management every day with little to no training or preparation. The key to success is managing effectively both up and down the line of the organisation.

Literally two books in one, Suddenly in Charge provides all of the tools necessary to be successful. Read it in one direction and you'll find all the advice and resources you need to manage down, establish credibility with your team, and lead in a way that builds rapport and garners respect. Flip the book over and you'll find success strategies for managing up, interacting successfully with your bosses and developing strong relationships.

This third edition is fully revised and updated for the post-covid world of work, with new chapters on difficult conversations, how to ask for a raise and actually get it, and weaving in advice and stories to guide readers who are working in a hybrid or remote environments.

The new edition of Suddenly in Charge is the playbook for every new leader - both at home and in the office.
