You Can't Know It All: Leading in the Age of Deep Expertise

en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 18 Jun 2019
Today’s organizations are packed full of experts in every area from marketing to risk to sales to IT. Many of these people are also leaders, heading teams or large departments. They are followed because they know more than the rest of their group. They are followed because of their credibility as experts.
The toughest transition in business comes when expert leaders are asked to move beyond their expertise and lead a less homogenous group. Suddenly, experts face a new set of problems. They struggle to gain basic competence in dozens of areas without having to become the expert in every aspect. In Wanda Wallace’s experience, this move—from expert leader to a broader kind of authority—requires a new mindset about how to lead.
Wallace explains what few people understand—how to add value as a leader when you’re dealing with an ever growing set of responsibilities over which you have little detailed knowledge. The work you do and the way you interact with people must also change. Managing now requires a light touch and a different approach to delegation. Above all, managing is about recognizing that while you may not do all the work of your team, you must enable the team to do the work. In this world, trust becomes essential.
In You Can’t Know It All, Wallace presents the coaching model she has developed to address the challenges of this transition. She offers strategies for individuals to navigate their new roles and learn to combine their expertise with their leadership responsibilities. She gives essential advice on the fundamental change in mind-set that this requires.
This invaluable handbook offers novice and experienced managers alike insights into their own careers, explains why their star performers may suddenly be floundering, and provides essential tools for guiding development.

Recenzii

“Deeply powerful and delightfully practical, I instantly recognized my clients in its pages and, perhaps more important, I also recognized myself. A must-read for leaders serious about their results and their own growth.”
“In You Can’t Know It All, Wallace helps us see how leadership in today’s age of deep expertise has evolved from our general-manager notions of the past. Wallace weaves together compelling and candid stories of real leaders with her own coaching experience and simple, actionable exercises. This leadership book is on point and right on time.”
“This is a real-world practical guide on how to move out of your comfort zone as a subject-matter expert and develop the skills you need to manage in today’s technical and fast-moving business world.”
“This is an incredibly important topic and one we don’t pay sufficient attention to. Making the transition from expert to non-expert is often the point at which high-potential careers falter, and we -- the individuals and organizations -- often don’t know why. This book helps us all understand the issues and how to overcome them, to the benefit of everyone.”
“Dr. Wanda Wallace has packed You Can’t Know It All with practical tools distilled from a command of the research and refined in her coaching work with hundreds of leaders around the world. You Can’t Know It All fills a critical gap for those who aspire to lead and inspire on the big stage.”
“This book is a must-have for careerists looking to advance in today’s global and complex business environment.
