A promotion is a great accomplishment and recognition of your skills. It can also be a minefield as you are asked to manage those who have been your peers, fundamentally changing the nature of your relationships with those around you. The skills and behaviors that made you a good team member may not necessarily be those you need to be a good manager. Rank is a hot-button issue for many people and navigating this change takes sensitivity and good self-awareness. In this session you will learn: - How to avoid the pitfalls that commonly derail the newly promoted
-Methods for identifying what’s really happening, both in yourself and those around you - Strategies for successfully transitioning from peer to manager
