Publisher's Summary

Make the move from star contributor to exceptional leader in this long overdue hands-on guide.

Today’s organizations are packed full of experts in every area from marketing to sales to IT. Many of these people are also leaders, heading teams or departments. They lead because they know more than the rest of their group. They are followed because of their credibility as experts. 

Yet, the toughest transition in business comes when expert leaders are asked to move beyond their expertise and lead a larger group. They struggle with how to span a broad area without trying to become the expert in every aspect. In Wanda Wallace’s experience, this move - from expert to spanning leader - requires a new mind-set about how to lead.

Wallace explains what few people understand - how to add value as a leader when you’re spanning an ever growing set of responsibilities. In You Can’t Know It All, Wallace presents the coaching model she has developed to address this challenging transition. She provides tools and strategies for individuals to navigate their new roles and learn to combine their expertise with their leadership responsibilities. She also offers essential advice on the fundamental change in mind-set that this requires. 

Not just for novice managers, this invaluable audio handbook offers human resources professionals and mentors insights into why their company’s star performer may be suddenly floundering and offers essential tools to guide them. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Full of revelations for real life!

I kept nodding my head along to this book. It brings a lot of clarity to real life management troubles...with stories and trouble-shooting! I already recommended it to a friend.

Exceptionally relevant for any leader

You Can't Know it All very concisely puts into words the evolution of a growing leader from leading on the basis of expertise to expanding outside that expertise to encompass additional responsibilities. There were multiple instances throughout the book where Wanda was able to put a "why" to observations I have made throughout my own career. Additionally, there were multiple, actionable steps that I immediately implemented with my team to drive more collaboration, ownership, and accomplishment within my direct repots. Her insight is spot on and her action steps and assessments add immediate, as well as long term, value. Highly recommend.
