Becoming A Manager

Author: Linda A. Hill


One of the top most challenges, almost every organisation is facing today is “Talent”. And the impact of Talent at a managerial or leadership position is multi fold, since it impacts every person down under the hierarchy.  On the same topic of developing and making newly elevated managers successful, read a wonderful book ‘Becoming A manager’ by Linda A. Hill.

As the author, Linda A. Hill states, Becoming a Manager is about the “fundamentals”; its about unlearning deeply held attitudes and habits that were developed when people were simply responsible for their own performance; it’s about learning something new. In today’s VUCA world, the rate and magnitude of change appear to be escalating. And change not only means leading and changing others, but changing oneself.
