ARE YOU AN

EMERGING LEADER? 

Emerging Leader

You’ve proven yourself as an individual contributor and are anticipating or in the process of managing your first team. This is an exciting and challenging time for you! If you are like most new leaders, you’re discovering the landscape is very different.. How do you transition from being a strong worker to effectively leading others? The key is knowing yourself and how to leverage your unique strengths in working for and with others. This awareness  requires leadership knowledge and practice, as well as effective communication and negotiation skills.

MID-CAREER MANAGER? 

Mid-Career Manager

 

You are now managing others - either directly or indirectly. Your responsibilities have increased and now have to manage up, down and sideways. You’ve mastered the basics, but you know you’ve just started to tap into your full leadership potential. That said, it’s difficult to rise above simply responding to the day-to-day demands of work. How do you go beyond the “tyranny of the urgent” to go deeper and leverage your natural talents to become a highly effective and impactful leader and contributor?

What’s next?  It’s time to take some well-deserved time to envision your future and understand who you are and how to harness your personal power.
