We’re back with the Work Smart Club and, today, we are sticking with last week’s theme of progressing into a new role with a new emphasis on transitioning from an expert to a leader. Becoming a leader requires a unique set of skills and a common misconception is that, as a leader, you can always do things your way. We discuss how leaders need to learn how to actively listen, why they must set the stage for others to shine, and why training for mid-level leaders is essential, as well as why it’s important to understand that the change starts with you. Seeing negative experiences as adventures can help unlock your true potential, and we learn that making the transition into a leader is a matter of changing your mindset. Your host lays down some practical advice for progressing from expert to leader, plus some tips for finding your courage, being in control of yourself before leading others, listening more and reacting less, and being comfortable with the unknown. For more on how embracing uncertainty can help you to build trust with your team, tune in today!
