The book officially launched on March, 25, 2015 and secured the #1 Bestseller rank in Australia, United Kingdom and the United States in five different categories on the day of release. The book continues to trend as of May, 1, 2015.
Leading the five categories of Vocational Guidance, Communication in Management, Business Skills, Total Quality Management and Professional Development was a special win for Smith because the successful book launch solidified his position in the marketplace.
At the top of Amazon’s bestseller section, Smith’s book beat out an industry-favorite title, “Emotional Intelligence” by Tatyana Williams.
The New Managers Catch-22 aims to provide new and struggling managers with specific strategies proven to overcome the stress, isolation and self-doubt of the new manager. This includes:
• Positioning the manager to ask for help without sounding ineffective, weak and incompetent
• Enhancing communication skills so the manager can relay senior management decisions with authority; and without losing the friendship, acceptance and respect of previous co-workers
• A specific technique to gain confidence, peace of mind and control throughout the day with a simple five minute exercise
Unlike other management books, Smith’s book is geared more towards an insider’s conversation as the book was derived from a tele-conference interview. An interview conducted between Smith and a Small Business Trendsetter’s contributor. The goal was to depart from the typical publication style and create an engaging experience for the reader.
When asked why he believes The New Managers Catch-22 is unique, Smith states, “workers jump at senior management because it’s an advancement, more money et cetera. They know the job back to front, but they don’t have management skills so they need a safe place to turn. My book is that safe place.”
As a result of the Amazon number one bestseller rankings, Smith has been crowned a leading authority in the Management Skill Development category and “The New Managers Catch-22: How To Keep The Trust Of Your Subordinates & Upper Management When You Don’t Trust Yourself” has been acknowledged by peers around the world.
