Description

ISBN: 9781593700751

Sargent has given his "from buddy to boss" lecture many times to rousing applause and "aha" moments, and now his sage advice is available in this no-holds-barred leadership book. Sargent's conversational writing style makes this an easy read. This is like having a mentor and friend in book format. Alan Brunacini's book blurb says it better than anything I could write: "When a worker becomes a boss, they sign up for a whole new career. The new boss must go from just having to manage what they do, to being responsible for both the performance and the welfare of the workers assigned to them. Now they must (also) deal with whatever part of the human condition that their workers shop up with. Chase Sargent has produced an excellent instructional manual to help make that transition. Chase is a very smart, experienced guy who can explain stuff in plain, street-oriented language. I wish Chase's book had been available in 1964 when I went from buddy to boss . . . it would have saved me a lot of road rash."
