Greensboro, NC – In a new post on HarvardBusinessReview.org, CCL senior research scientist Bill Gentry offers advice on “Navigating the Transition from Friend to Boss.” Tapping into his research and practical experience training CCL’s Maximizing Your Leadership Potential program for first-time leaders, Gentry explores four specific tips for what to do when your friends and peers become your employees.

Gentry’s insights on the keys to successful leadership for first-time managers are also available in two CCL white papers: Understanding the Challenges of First-Time Managers and “It’s Not About Me. It’s Me & You:” How Being Dumped Can Help First-Time Managers.
