Stepping up to a team leadership role in an organization often means doing less of what you’re good at and best known for, and more of what’s needed now. Which usually means enabling the growth and success of those you lead, for starters. It may also mean being a more strategic leader, expected to contribute to the organization in different ways. And, it often means a far more fundamental shift in leadership identity, as you move from ‘subject matter expert’ to ‘organizational leader.’ Navigating the transition can be challenging; what might it mean for you?
In this engaging and interactive workshop, you’ll have an opportunity to explore the questions of leadership purpose, identity and team leadership, and consider what it means for you –whether you are an emerging leader or a well-established professional taking on new and different people leadership responsibilities. The approach will be thought-provoking, interactive and applied, with time for personal reflection as well as shared learning. You will have an opportunity to explore core concepts essential for team leadership success and deepen your awareness of what it means for your continued growth and development.
