The Focused Leader
The transition from working as a high-performing individual contributor to becoming a successful leader can be complicated and confusing. Frequent issues to overcome as a new leader are:
Learning to take on multiple roles and responsibilities
Dealing with rapid change
Coping with limited specialised expertise
Building and managing a cohesive team
Coping with uncertainty and risk
Performing with limited resources
Not having a clear understanding of your own performance (how do you measure a good manager?)
Overcoming these challenges starts with developing a combination of emotional intelligence, adaptability, resilience, overview, and effective communication. Some of these skills you will already have, and some you will need to develop or learn. Mentoring, ongoing training, and professional networking can all provide valuable insights and support for you to gain knowledge and experience.
However, to become the leader you want to be and accommodate your skills, character, beliefs, and values, you need internal reflection and transformative thinking that training and learning can't offer. It can be hard to know where to start this process, and it can be long and confusing. That's when you need a coach.
And that is why I started The Focused Leader. Transformative coaching for senior leaders, C-suite executives, and entrepreneurs Take the time to step back and reflect on how you can become the leader you want to be.
