Transition to Manager: How Your Leadership Style Impacts Others (Seminar)

“Transition to Manager” Overview

The Harvard Professor, Linda Hill, stated that learning how to lead is a process of learning and unlearning. If you’re a really successful star producer, you have to unlearn to create the space to learn how to transform your professional identity. It’s a very deep kind of learning—a different mindset, a different set of values. Many people reported ‘I never knew a promotion would be so painful’ because of that unlearning process.

It’s so much harder to assess your impact through others, so transition to manager is not only about the acquisition of competencies, but really the acquisition of a new professional identity to be able to do the work you need to do when you’re working with other people, as opposed to doing the work yourself. This Program helps the participants to face this transition and define new ways of working that will allow them to be effective leaders in their organisation.

This program seeks to assist recently appointed leaders and supervisors to transition into the leadership role. This is the most significant and challenging transition – from subject matter expert to delivering results through a team.
