Join Sara Canaday for an in-depth discussion in this video Wrap up, part of Transitioning from Technical Professional to Manager.
Making the transition from technical professional to manager is a rewarding process filled with immense opportunities, and of course, some hurdles you are now better prepared to handle. Congratulations to you on completing this course. I hope you've gained some valuable insights through these lessons. At the beginning of our time together, you completed a leadership self-assessment. And I like to give you a challenge. Download an extra copy of that form and mark your calendar to repeat that assessment six months from today, after implementing the strategies you've learned.
If you've made a solid commitment to build your leadership skills, to expand your perspective, and to develop a team of future leaders, I'm confident you'll see amazing results, for your team, for your career and for your organization. You'll be able to visualize that progress by comparing your answers on the two assessments. One important thought to leave you with, it takes some time to fully embrace the role of a manager. Despite all of your past technical success, you're embarking on a brand new journey, one that requires a different mindset and vastly different skills.
Don't beat yourself up if you haven't mastered it all by the time your new business cards arrive. Strive for progress and improvement each day and you'll be laying the foundation for your new era of success as a manager. For additional resources, I would recommend checking out some of my other courses on this platform. I also invite you to visit my website at saracanaday.com. I hope you'll stay in touch. Thank you again for joining me and I wish you continued success in the future.
