Some call it “hazardous duty.” Others refer to the process of transitioning into a new leadership role as “beating the odds.” Leaders who transition into new roles have to overcome the “Newly Appointed Leadership Dilemma.” In many of today’s organizations the expectations for results is as high or higher than it has ever been while the organization’s patience to achieve those results is the shortest it has ever been. Moving into a new leadership role provides great opportunities but it is a very challenging period for the leader as well as his/her team and, often, the broader organization. This is a practical webinar that presents a dozen key principles that can be used for all leadership transitions.
Additionally, tools/templates such as Confirmation of Your Appointment Charter, Your Comprehensive Stakeholder Analysis, Accelerating Your Learning Plan, The New Leader and Team Assimilation Process, Team Integrity and Capability Grid and The Newly Promoted Strengths/Over-Used Strengths exercisewill be described and provided. Special attention will also focus on the topic of Achieving a New Life Integration: The Impact of Moving Up on Your Family, Health and Time.
At the conclusion of this webinar participants will be able to:
- Cite the 12 key principles that can be used to overcome the newly appointed leader dilemma.
- Access and begin to utilize at least 5 practical tools that can help a leader manage his/her transition effectively
- Describe at least three concepts that can help the transitioning leader to effectively manage the impact of moving up on one’s family, health and time.
