40-60% of new managers fail or underperform within their first 2 years on the job!

It’s shocking, and it hurts! If you’re new to leadership then you basically have a 50-50 chance of succeeding.

Now, you might think your past success will protect you from future failure but here is the thing: what got you here won’t get you there!

If you underperform you obviously miss opportunities for career growth, raises, and promotions which hurts financially…

But what’s even worse is that your self-confidence might drop to the floor and you might start thinking about giving up that dream of reaching the C-Suite one day. 

And that’s what’s so hard!

Because the truth is that the problem is not YOU!

The reason all this is happening is that the vast majority of new managers, and likely you as well, never receive the leadership training they desperately need.

And that’s a huge risk.

As you transition from an IC role into your first leadership role, you have to make several changes to what you do and how you do things.

In this week’s episode, I discuss 4 main shifts in the following domains:

  1. Strategy and Vision
  2. Accountability and Responsibility
  3. Performance
  4. Execution
