Many people are great at their job and catch the eye of their employer, leading to a promotion. Often times, there are skills gaps; meaning just because you are effective at your work, it does not necessarily mean you are ready to lead others.
*We all need training when accepting a new leadership role.*
In this course, I give you applicable steps to take, fostering a successful transition in your new role. Think soft skills within a coaching framework you can implement easily over a few weeks.
These will be some of the most impactful hours of your life when you implement the concepts taught consistently over time. If you have been in your new role for a while, it is not too late to begin, even if you feel like you have made mistakes. What's important is to get back up, dust yourself off and learn. This is a success mindset that will see you through the most challenging scenarios.
In this course, we will talk about the challenges that we all face as new leaders. It's something that people do not talk about because it may be perceived as weakness. It is normal to combat imposter syndrome, criticism of others, loneliness in our new role; feeling misunderstood amongst the rejection and accusations.
You are in the right place to be empowered and encouraged as you practice and apply these concepts daily in your new role. Assignment sections include full video explanation, as well as written prompts; resulting in improved user experience while taking the class on the Udemy app.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for you if you have been promoted to a managerial or leadership position, and previously worked on a team, so you may now be managing your previous co-workers.
