Sometimes we’re tossed into the deep end to lead a team, or sometimes we throw our new leaders in. The “sink or swim” mentality of leadership is one that’s been around for ages yet doesn’t always give new leaders the best opportunity to be successful. Whether you are a new leader, or have leaders that you are developing, this session is for you. We will cover four strategies to have with you as your Leadership Life Preserver to help your new leader be successful from the beginning. In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • Understanding the business strategy and objectives (and how you can impact it as a leader),
  • Establishing yourself as a leader with your team early on (through building trust and relationships),
  • Clarifying your scope and decision-making responsibilities (so you can fully own your role), and
  • Diagnosing problems and finding resources (so you can support and engage your team).
