People are promoted for performing at a high level in their organization, contributing to the mission and visions, and exceeding the expectations of their leadership team and stakeholders. However, what got you to the promotion may not be the thing that sustains or propels you in the new role. You now need to employ new knowledge, skills, and abilities to excel in your new role with new responsibilities and accountabilities. This session will give you the tools and insight you need to step into your new role with the confidence you need to be successful.
