‘Excelerating’ Organizational Leadership
Most professionals spend years perfecting their expertise, whether it be operations, sales, finance, marketing, IT, etc. However, their world shifts when they are promoted 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 are often lacking experience and will be required 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 business 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.
