Crossing the Great (Management) Divide: The Business Case for Inboarding
Presented by Larry Kroh
February 4, 2013
In-Person & Webinar Event
What are the five new leadership challenges that must be addressed by all new directors? What leadership skills must be mastered to address these challenges?
Based on Larry's observations as an executive coach, the transition from manager to director is treated by many organizations as a non event, when it should be viewed as a major career transition step.
Organizations often don’t recognize the difficulties involved in this transition, and assume that the experience previously gained as a manager will be enough to prepare them for the challenges at the director level. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
Larry will address what OD leaders can do to help organizations address this critical leadership transition.
