Episode 17: How to Successfully Transition Into Your New Leadership Role


How to Successfully Transition Into Your New Leadership Role

with Kat Rippy

Hello Leaders! Today I thought I’d cover a pretty hot topic – leaders in transition. A while back, we posted an article on how to manage a transition to a new leadership role after I realized that a many of the leaders we’ve worked with over the past few years were going through a transition to a pretty significant new role. That article received more than double the interest of our other blog posts, which confirmed what I had expected: this is a big challenge many of you are facing, and you will likely go through it more than once in your career!

I know how hard it is and I’ve been in the trenches with quite a few leaders who have handled this well. So you will survive. I promise. As a matter of fact, I’m really excited to let you in on a little secret—we are officially building a program just for you—leaders who are transitioning into a new role—and it will take all the guessing out of the situation and give you the confidence that you are, in fact, doing it right!

You can pre-register for the program at a discounted rate if you go to https://energizeleadership.com/leader-success-kit-program/
