CCL Boost demonstrates the 6 “flips” that will help you succeed in the transition from individual contributor to new manager.

New leaders who receive no development

New leaders who are ineffective at work

New leaders who fail within the first 18 months

It takes an average of 143 days for people to conclude a new leader has failed making the transition.

New leaders need to rethink the way they think about success.  The skills, knowledge and perspectives that helped them to get the new leader job, are not necessarily the ones that will help them keep the job or advance in their careers.  But they need support and help.

CCL Boost™ Flip Your Script For New Leader Success is an online tool based on the research and real world experience of William Gentry. This online tool equips new managers with the leadership skills, confidence and support needed to effectively transition into a management role. It provides six flips or tactics that new managers can use while on the job to attain immediate success in their new role.


We all have mental scripts that tell us how the world works.


Your old script was all about “me” — standing out as an individual.


But as a new leader, you need to flip your script from “me” to “we” and help the group you lead succeed.

First time manager roles demand a new way of thinking. Flipping this mindset from being an individual contributor to a new manager is critical to your success.
When you accept the opportunity to lead a team of people you have to think differently about what it means to be effective. You can’t rely solely on those skills that got you the promotion. You’re now expected to get the work done through others.
When we become new leaders, some of our work relationships change. No longer are you a team member, but you now lead the team. Adjustments may need to be made from being a peer or friend to someone to being their manager.
As a new leader, you may be tempted to retain the work that made you a “superstar” as an individual contributor, but as many new leaders learn, they cannot do it all.
The most effective new leaders recognize the need for peripheral vision. They need to have a broader organizational view to help their employees make the link between their work and the strategic vision and goals of the organization from them.
Flipping your focus involves your integrity and character. As a leader, who you are as a person — your core values and deepest beliefs — will most likely come to the surface and influence your success or failure.
