Emerging Leader Experience
Research shows that first-time managers aren’t ready to lead. They not only need support, but they also need the necessary skills to learn how to develop their own people. It’s a challenge to move your mindset from being an individual contributor to a manager. Investing in your new leaders early will help them become better at business strategy, sooner rather than later, they can learn how to navigate change and challenges and they can develop good management behaviors before bad ones have become a natural part of their everyday world.
