Stepping UP to Leadership … for Transitioning and Emerging Leaders

October 07, 2014

11:00 am-12:00 pm Eastern Time
“Congratulations!!  You are now the Manager of XYZ.  Go forth and do good things.  We’re counting on you.” 

An exciting opportunity?  For Sure! But, what does it really mean to be a leader? What’s the difference between a good manager and a good leader? Are some of us just natural leaders? Can leadership be learned?  Why was I selected? Why did I agree?  Are the challenges I am experiencing unique? How do I gain the trust and respect of those I lead, when I was once one of them?  How can I manage the additional responsibility and accountability?  What’s in it for me? 

These are some of the most common questions new and emerging leaders have about their role. There are millions of books, classes, and resources for leaders today, and yet, we can still feel very lonely and isolated in our own journey to becoming a leader.
Our first Training webinar for Emerging Leaders will help you answer these questions for yourself, and develop clarity about the direction of your career path as a leader. You will receive a simple process to help you create a Leadership Development Plan that will guide your journey from being an individual contributor to becoming a competent and confident leader.
