The work I do with my clients often centers around adapting to a new role or promotion. It sounds easy, and many of my clients beat themselves up because they assumed it should be an easier transition than it actually is.

Taking on a promotion typically looks like being further away from the hands-on work that is being done. Trying to stay close to the work, while coming from a good place of wanting to make sure the work his high quality, can overwhelm your to-do list and train some bad habits in your team.

Each new role you take on requires you to shift the way you think of yourself and how you think you provide the highest value.

This was something a woman in our community, T, realized while we were recording this on-air coaching session.

Take a listen to this episode and let me know if any of this resonated with you. I'm offering T some tips and new perspectives, along with a book recommendation that may be helpful to you as well so stay ‘til the end.

How are you at developing others?

  • Would you say you’re a pro at this?
  • Do you need work in this area?
  • Maybe you’re somewhere in between?

Making sure your team is getting ongoing learning and development opportunities, formal and informal, is important if you want to hire and retain talented individuals. This also translates into a bigger bottomline for your company and a team that is effectively hitting their goals.

In this episode, we’re going to cover what research is saying about learning and development in the workplace and the best ways to develop those around you.

Have you ever left a leadership development training feeling like it barely scratched the surface of what you needed?

Or, that too much time was spent on competencies you’ve never had an issue with?

You might have even had your concerns as a leader brushed aside or dismissed with comments such as, delegate that to your team, speak up more in meetings, brag more, or communicate clearly but don’t be too direct.

All this without any guidance on how to navigate the bias, the double-standards, and the identity issues that emerge when we are asked to change our patterns of thought and behavior.

The root of the problem is most leadership development training was not designed for women and fails to take women’s specific brain functions, societal conditioning or obstacles into consideration.

In this episode we’re covering why leadership development for women is so important and why it needs to change.
