The transition from being a great individual contributor to being a leader of others is one of the most important and challenging career stages. If this first leadership transition does not go well, it often delivers a negative ripple effect that can dim future career prospects. The bad news is, more than 50% of first-time managers get lower performance evaluations as leaders, than they did as individual contributors. The good news is, when the transition goes well, it can produce positive career results that are amplified far into the future.
Learning to Lead is designed to help first time managers understand the nature of the transition from being a great individual contributor to being a team leader and to develop the critical people skills that often make the difference between longer-term career success or failure.
