    One thought on “From Bud to Boss: Secrets to a Successful Transition to Remarkable Leadership”

    1. Great for any new supervisor or manager. Kevin and Guy offer practicable steps to help you move from individual contributor to being responsible for the contributions of a team.

    2. I don't remember how I first learned of Kevin Eikenberry, but finding him has been a "gold mine." I get his weekly news which always contains some great gems. I had read his book Remarkable Leadership which was excellent. Then with my new position at Esperanza as Ex. Dir./Principal, I was especially excited to read this book, From Bud to Boss. I was not disappointed. It, too, is excellent--filled with wise counsel.

    3. Great book that covers off nicely the journey from being 'one of the team' to leading the team. It's sensible and practical and above all asks you to remember what got you to the leadership position in the first place. Stick with your strengths and communicate a lot with the people above and below you- have clear conversations about what success looks like. It's a really nice, practical book that (hopefully) will be of use to everyone one day.

    4. This book compiles a lot of already known ideas into one place. It is a good book to keep your head in the game. My problems: The book didn't have any meat until about page 50. It was just talking about what eventually was going to be discussed, in the first 50 pages as well as throughout the rest of the book. A good editor could have condensed the book into a more manageable read.

    5. Making the transition from "bud" to "boss" can be a tricky one . The authors show how to adopt the mindset of a leader. They suggest that you start clarifying the expectations of your manager and of your new reports. The book is full of additional information on how to become a successful leader.
