Why you want to learn it

We assume that a high-performance employee can immediately translate to a high-performance leader. The fact is that the skillset and mindset are completely different and the transition can be hard. It’s hard on new leaders because they have to shift from relying on themselves to relying on others for results. It’s hard on the organization because it loses the work output from their prior role to gain a leader who is learning on the job.

Discover your unique strengths as a leader and develop additional competencies that will help you achieve the skills and characteristics that can push you to your next level of success as a leader in your organization. Work through others in a trusting and dynamic relationship to gain connection, cooperation, and collaboration.
