- One of the most gratifying parts of my corporate career was helping employees take their first steps into the leadership role. Even for highly qualified candidates, it can be a daunting shift. They'll face bigger demands and greater opportunities, and they'll need a more diverse set of skills to continue on their journey towards success. Managing new leaders is a different type of challenge and it's a big responsibility.
