CCL Boost™ for New Leaders

Teach the Secrets of a Successful Transition to Management

Support your new leaders in developing the leadership skills and confidence needed to transition effectively into a management role.

Making the jump from individual contributor to manager is a transition that every leader must make, and it can be challenging. New leaders need to reconsider the way they think about success. The skills, knowledge, and perspectives that helped them get the new leadership role are not necessarily what will help them excel or advance in their careers.

Too many new leaders get no support in this transition and struggle in their new roles. Data supports this:

  • 60% report not receiving development
  • 50% are rated as “ineffective” by their superiors
  • 40% fail within the first 18 months

“I learned more about myself as an individual and a leader after going through this experience. One of the greatest things I learned from this course was figuring out how to flip my mindset and become that leader/manager that my direct reports trust and want to work for.”

Boost for New Leaders Participant 

“I appreciated the depth of the program and how it delved into each “flip” citing specific things to work on and address as a new leader. It was helpful to find out that a lot of new leaders struggle with the same types of things.”

Boost for New Leaders Participant

“I was surprised how right on it was about becoming a leader and what can happen if you don’t flip your script. I thought I was the only one who had experienced these things and I was a total screw up. Good to know I’m not the only one!”

Boost for New Leaders Participant 

“I had several aha moments while watching the videos and reading the articles which related to my past/present experience. Hearing personal stories from others made me realize I’m not alone in this journey.”
