‘Excelerating’ Organizational Leadership
Most professionals spend years perfecting their expertise, whether it be operations, sales, finance, marketing, IT, etc. However, when they’re promoted, their world shifts to supervise or manage others. With years of functional expertise, they move into a vastly different role with little preparation. And too often, this new skill of ‘leadership’ is learnt on the backs of employees.
As leaders progress, they experience other shifts for which they often lack experience and are made to ‘learn on the job.’ They shift from leader of individual contributors to the coach of other leaders. And for some, moving to executive roles, they are now leading others in areas of the workplace they have never overseen before.
Each step is a seismic shift that we don’t often realize until we are there. By helping leaders excel, Axiom is there every step of the way; the leadership journey doesn’t have to be a lonely one.
