Leadership Transitions

Leadership Transition

Transitioning into a new, more senior role can be a challenging time for leaders. With the transition comes expectations from the organisation around the leaders ability to deliver at this new level and to deliver quickly.

New skills, knowledge and capabilities need to be learnt and applied. Alongside this, leaders need to make a shift in their thinking, taking a broader more strategic view. 

Leaders need to develop new ways of working; hone their interpersonal skills, build their emotional intelligence. In some cases, they also need to let go of ways of doing things that helped them get to where they are, but may hinder them in their new role. An inability to successfully transition into a more senior level of leadership can cause leaders to stall, plateau or derail in their careers. It can also significantly impact achievement of results for the organisation.

2thrive helps high potentials, managers and leaders successfully step up into more senior management and leadership roles.
