Everyone Deserves a Great Manager


If you're like the millions of people who've made the challenging but rewarding leap to first time manager, you might not be sure what your next move is. What made you a successful employee won't necessarily make you a great manager, and the reality is that most people don't receive formal leadership training until twelve years after their promotion into management.

FranklinCovey's Everyone Deserves a Great Manager delivers the guidance you expect to receive when you're promoted: the support, understanding, strategies, and tactics to develop as a leader and turn your people into an engaged, high-performing team. Based on nearly a decade of research, the 6 Critical Practices will give you a head start in building the competence and confidence you need to succeed as a first-time manager.

The FranklinCovey leadership experts not only teach you how to think like a leader, they also give you practical tools and actionable steps to implement on the job. On BookClub, co-authors Todd Davis and Victoria Roos Olsson join their third co-author, FranklinCovey’s Effective Leadership Book Club host Scott J. Miller, for an in-depth look at the tools and steps that will help you lead the best team possible. They look at all 6 of the critical practices mentioned in the book and push readers to become the type of managers that lead with and through others.

Sparks are relevant, bite-sized insights intended to provide quick learning and focus on application. You'll have the opportunity to reflect individually and receive the language to talk about these concepts with others.
