A Guide for New Leaders
Gentry shows how any new boss can find success by supporting the success of others.
"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
