Getting promoted (especially to a supervisory role) is exciting…and scary. With a promotion to leadership, supervision or management comes some unexpected challenges and changes to roles in your responsibilities, relationships, and perspectives.
Perhaps you don’t really know what is expected of you. Perhaps you got promoted over your friends or peers, and aren’t sure how to make those relationships work. Perhaps you got the job…and others you know wanted it (badly).
The reality is leadership is complex to start with, and when you add all of these concerns on top of it, it can be daunting. Given all of that – we know the rest of the story too. . .
You want to do well . . . but you want to do more than survive, or stumble around trying to learn it all by trial and error. You want to be successful.
You want to make a difference.
Do you have the support, knowledge and skills you need to succeed?
Are you getting the training you need?
Sadly, according to careerbuilder.com more than 60% of new leaders don’t get any training at all. Even if your organization does provide some training, it often comes too late and lacks a focus on leadership skills that can help you become effective in communicating with, collaborating with, and coaching your reports.
