September 2003
Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
This earnest guide to career transition periods-when a new job or promotion puts an employee in an unfamiliar role-asserts, reassuringly, that navigating the all-important first 90 days is a "teachable skill." Business professor Watkins, co-author of Right From the Start: Taking Charge in a New Leadership Role, lays out a "standard framework" for leadership transitions, based on "five fundamental propositions," "ten key challenges," and a four-fold typology of situations that new managers find themselves in. Fortunately, Watkins balances the theorizing with practical steps managers can take to get on top of things and initiate changes, including elaborate self-assessment checklists, planning exercises and meticulous guidelines on how to have conversations with underlings and bosses.

101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions
Ron Fry
156414464X
January 2000
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Two more sources for job hunters. Both are useful, affordable guides to the interview process with different focuses. Fry's emphasis on one aspect of the procedure, the one-on-one interview (i.e., the selection rather than the screening), in a question-and-answer format offers a fresh, active approach to a timely subject. After two introductory chapters of guidelines, the author identifies the toughest themes of a successful encounter and provides proven responses in clear, readable text. In a revision of his comprehensive classic Sweaty Palms ( LJ 7/78), Medley updates his how-to handbook of job interviewing techniques, emphasizing skills and strategic planning. Although still verbose, the guide, however, gives full explanations of a wide coverage of tips from preparation and salary negotiation to issues of sex in...
