How to Build a Great First-Level Leader

OVERVIEW

Why First-Level Leaders?

Great individual contributors are often promoted to first-level leader positions with the expectation that they will be just as great managing a team. Few realize that the shift from producing individual results to getting results with and through other people requires a vastly different mindset, skillset, and toolset.

 

Providing essential leadership development is critical to the success of your organization and these first-level leaders. Think about the tremendous impact they have on your organization. They execute key strategies, keep frontline staff engaged, and often serve as escalation points for unhappy customers.

 

We hope you find the following research insightful and the tools valuable as you think about your first-level leaders. If you have questions or are interested in receiving our help to architect a development plan, please contact your FranklinCovey client partner.
