Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The author, Jeff Parks, was a card-carrying scientist. He loved his high school classes in biology, chemistry, and physics, then went on to become an eager researcher and problem solver in college and graduate school. But it wasn’t until he got his first job at a small biotech start-up that he realized he’d never fully developed the skills and sensibilities he needed to be a business leader. #2 Many leaders, like Jeff, have the desire to make a positive impact on the world, but circumstances often get in the way. In Jeff’s case, his job as a team leader at a start-up company created an opportunity for him to create something new and valuable. But his company failed to provide him with the resources he needed. #3 The 70-20-10 rule is an empirical finding that states that 70 percent of what managers learn about how to be good managers is learned from experience, 20 percent from other people, and just 10 percent from reading books or attending courses. #4 New responsibilities offer great potential for personal growth. Because you are dealing with a situation that is new to you, you inevitably need to move out of your comfort zone and try new behaviors.
