Learning to be a great leader after you are in the position is like learning to play football after you’ve been drafted: it’s possible, but not nearly as easy as it looks in the movies.
Chances of success are far greater and the transition much easier for those who invest in their own development. Sadly, this mindset is less common than it should be.
Spending a few hours per month with a coach or mentor can make a huge difference for an aspiring leader. This proactive focus provides an edge when seeking a position and creates easier wins once you are there.
I’m excited that a growing number of our clients have adopted this mindset. We are able to work with them, some before they even enter a leadership role, to support their path to success.
