Why Star Performers Can Fail as Leaders – an interview with Donna Evans, founder of Team Building for Success
The star performer is promoted into a management role. They weren’t hired for this responsibility, but now they have it. It’s an age-old story. Little training will likely be offered, so it’s up to the new manager to figure out how to be successful, because once you fail as a manager you may not get a second chance. While leadership has never been easy, there are consistent practices that successful leaders follow to make their teams and themselves successful. Don’t wait for your employer to send you to training before taking steps to educate yourself. In fact, becoming an effective leader requires consistent training over years as your knowledge, teams and business evolve. You can start here to get on the path to current and future success.
