Description

Managing is hard. Managing for the first time is even harder.

First-timers want to quickly learn what it takes to be a successful manager—like they learned how to code, how to design, how to sell—and put those learnings into practice. But what does it mean to manage, and how do you teach someone to be a good manager?
 
Enter Rachel Pacheco, an expert at helping start-ups solve their management and culture challenges. Pacheco, a former chief people officer and founding team executive at multiple start-ups, conducts research on management and works with CEOs and their managers to build the skills necessary to navigate a rapidly scaling organization.
 
In Bringing Up the Boss: Practical Lessons for New Managers, you’ll learn how to give effective feedback, how to motivate your team members, and how to hire and fire well, among many other critical management skills. You’ll also learn what it means to manage yourself in this new role, and how to navigate the often awkward and sometimes challenging situations that arise in this new position.
 
Pacheco shares what makes a manager great, along with anecdotes, research, tools, and how-to's that help overwhelmed employees become expert managers fast.

When you write a book from your heart and soul, bring value to every page and share the knowledge that other may apply, this is what you hold on your hands. This book has a great strict and a well balanced practical advice combined with theory of management. It can be recommended to any manager from a well established company to a start up. I have learned a lot of wisdom from this book.
