    Basic career-building and team-building guide

    This basic book drills readers with a fundamental message: Good leaders follow specific plans and put their subordinates first. The authors furnish specific tactics you can use to become a disciplined leader, ready and able to produce a top team. George Bradt, Jayme A. Check and Jorge Pedraza split their material evenly among tips on being a good leader, case studies and printed planning sheets to use to set up your first 100 days on the job. The information is easy to skim but the authors make some important points, including why you should start meeting key people in the company before you begin working in your new position. We recommend this basic career-building and team-building guide for every new manager¿s orientation kit. It¿s a small price to pay to survive and thrive in your new job.

    Sick votes Doom

    She is experienced and she uses reason instead of fighting when it is neccessary. The reason she was so liked because she is active and seemed calm at situations like when there is chaos. Go doom!

    Brewing Storms: The New Leader prolouge

    Bramblestar sighed. "Not again, Firestar. I understand your warning. But-" "No buts, Bramblestar. Tawnypelt's new litter is safe in ShadowClan." "Firestar! You don't understand! Kits have been disappearing!" "I understand perfectly. Just calm down. Worry about your clan and protect Dovewing's new kits." "At least help me with this problem! Firestar? Whats happening?" Firestar's face was contorting and Bramblestar quickly recognized his father. "Dark Forest cats don't get destroyed very easily..."

    A Tour De Force

    What a tour de force! Bradt, Check and Pedraza have hit a home run with the second edition of The New Leader's 100 Day Action Plan.

    Four C's apply: Clear, Concise, Comprehensive, and Cogent. It is hard to say which section is most insightful. My personal favorite is the embrace of the fuzzy front end. Clearly, this is the best book in the field - - competitors must be envious.

    The covers the spectrum with an intense focus from preparation to execution. It is no wonder that these guys get better results faster. Think: would I rather be Matt Ryan or Mark Sanchez?
