It’s also why she felt compelled to write her first book, The Making of a Manager: What to Do When Everyone Looks to You.She stared at a long list of logistics, from hiring to firing, from meeting to messaging, from planning to pitching, and faced a thousand questions and uncertainties. How was she supposed to spin teamwork into value? What was the secret to leading with confidence in new and unexpected situations?Now, having managed dozens of teams spanning tens to hundreds of people, Julie knows the most important lesson of all: great managers are made, not born.
