Have you ever thought about moving from an individual contributor role into management? Maybe it sounds like fun, but are you ready to take the plunge? Find out in this fun yet informative ebook that explores the ups and downs of business management. It also includes a short personality quiz to see if you have what it takes.


Herb Greenberg, Ph.D., is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer, and Patrick Sweeney is the President of Caliper, an international management consulting firm, which, for over a half-century, has assessed the potential of more than three million applicants and employees for over 25,000 companies around the world.

Headquartered in Princeton, with a dozen offices worldwide, Caliper consults with executives from Johnson & Johnson, Avis, and some of the fastest growing smaller companies around the world on unlocking the potential in individuals, leaders, and teams.

The authors have spoken at scores of international conferences and written for The New York Times and the Harvard Business Review. In addition, Herb and Patrick are the authors of the New York Times best seller Succeed on Your Own Terms, as well as How to Hire and Develop Your Next Top Performer, both published by McGraw-Hill.


When you think about all the career possibilities, it can be overwhelming. So often we hear the terms “manager,” “leader,” and “entrepreneur,” but what do those people really do? And could you do it too?

This series of ebooks by Caliper’s Herb Greenberg and Patrick Sweeney explores that question as it relates to each of us, and gives us an answer to the question, “Could you succeed as…?”

Each ebook talks about the personality traits needed to succeed in that role and how to determine if you have those traits. The authors also spoke extensively with those who have succeeded in the position—and those who failed. What separates the two? These ebooks get to the heart of the issue.
