Leading a team for the first time can be a daunting task. First-time leaders are faced with the challenge of moving from areas of technical expertise to general roles, often feeling they lack the necessary leadership tools and support network to meet their own high expectations.
In this session, Sharpist’s first-time leadership coach Katrin Grunwald will offer expert guidance on how to ensure new leaders are supported as they adapt to their new positions. While many organizations provide leadership training before, during, or sometimes even after first-time leaders start, Katrin stresses the importance of “just-in-time” support as an essential transition phase for the individual and as the backbone of any organization’s leadership pipeline.
Katrin will offer hands-on insights into the pivotal role HR professionals play in offering “just-in-time” support. By the end of the session, participants will be equipped with the concrete tools to get any organization’s first-time leaders off to a successful start through an engaging and interactive discussion on best practices.
