Employees making the transition from individual contributors to team leaders

First Time Leaders


Today marks one-month anniversary of the worst decision of my life: to take on more responsibilities and become a manager. They should add ‘will feel like rubber band’ to the job description. Stretched - Stressed - About to snap

The boss wants the results. ‘Where are the numbers, Atul? Where are the numbers? And my people are just incredible: a cold war between my best performers. Ravi walks out in the middle of a feedback session. Reena contributes nothing in group meetings though she knows more than me.

I think I need a break. Or maybe I’ll just break something.

This excerpt is a reflection of the tumultuous life of a First Time Leader.

Atul represents the countless first time leaders we have worked with in the organisations of today. The hidden problem is that most first time leaders are highly competent individual performers who get promoted to managing a team as a natural next step.

However, the new role as a First Time Leader means moving from being a high performing individual to a person who enables performance.

Our First Time Leader program addresses this need by developing attitudes and skills needed for new leaders to be successful.

The learning enables participants to handle real life challenges through practical, well researched tools and techniques. It further enables them to think like leaders and prepare them to be part of the leadership pipeline.
