Skill Level Beginner
Today, technology has seeped into every crevice of our organizations: manufacturing, operations, marketing, and beyond, which explains why technical professionals play such an essential role in their companies' success. While some technical experts prefer to continue as strong, individual contributors, others will be recognized for their outstanding contributions and promoted into management. That's an exciting new role but one that requires vastly different skills and competencies.
In recent years I've witnessed a huge increase in those types of promotions with mixed results. If you're in that category shifting from a technical position into a leadership capacity, it's critical for you to implement a deliberate strategy in making that important transition. I'm Sara Canaday, and I'd like to welcome you to this course. As a leadership expert, keynote speaker and author, I've helped thousands of people just like you to integrate the leadership skills that can accelerate careers and impact performance.
That's what I want to share with you through this program. As we work together, you'll gain an understanding of the new skills and habits that will position you as a leader. You'll learn how to expand your focus to incorporate the business and customer perspectives. And you'll prepare to make an impact at a much higher level by developing and inspiring your teams. As a bonus, I'll be giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the way I help some of my coaching clients to make the same career evolution. You'll discover insights you can use right away, and if you learn and apply the principles in this course, I'm confident you will see results.
Thank you for joining me along this journey as you transition from technical professional to manager. Now let's get started.
