							When you become a boss, you must focus on your group: flip that script from “me” to “we.” This means flipping pretty much everything else—your mindset, your skillset, your work relationships, your “do it all” attitude, your view of the organization, and more. Gentry walks you through each of six flips, offering practical, research-based advice and examples drawn from his work at CCL. But this book is more than a series of best practices—it's your guide to internalizing a leader's perspective. Gentry helps you flip your script so you'll know what to do to help yourself and the team you lead succeed. That's the kind of boss everyone wants to work for—and the kind of boss who accomplishes the most.

"If you are a new leader, this book is for you. The first chapter alone is worth the price of the book. Get started right and you can be the boss that everyone wants to work for. I highly recommend it." - Gary Chapman, author of The Five Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace

"Instead of learning from one (un)lucky boss at a time, what if you could learn from all of their successes and mistakes at once? That's what William Gentry offers-a tour through the art, science, and practice of leadership. With delightfully quirky writing and a strong foundation in evidence, this book is as fun to read as it is actionable." - Adam Grant, Professor of Psychology, The Wharton School

"Using a unique combination of research, straight talk, and humor, Gentry brings to light all of the barriers that keep new leaders from succeeding (including the ones we don't talk about) and offers clear-cut, actionable strategies to face those barriers head-on to become 'the boss everyone wants to work for.' It's clear that Gentry has a deep understanding of what it takes to develop strong leaders. This has become required reading in my organization." - Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, author of Daring Greatly and Rising Strong
