How To Prepare Yourself to Lead Others
Transitioning into a leadership role demands new skills.

Transitioning into a leadership role demands new skills.

Often, individuals with high potential are promoted based on their ambitious, detail-oriented, and hands-on contributions, along with their directive approach. However, as one steps into a higher role, leadership expectations shift towards empowering teams and strategic focus. This transition from micromanagement to emphasising people and strategy demands new skills and a different mindset. Unfortunately, many companies lack the resources to support new managers in this pivotal transition, leaving them to navigate the challenges alone.

Enter the Ascend Leadership program, tailored to empower women in newfound leadership positions. Our program is designed to nurture crucial people skills essential for influencing and maximising impact in the workplace. We equip you with the tools to achieve heightened organisational results, enabling you to navigate this transformation with confidence and finesse.

Testimonial

“I have seen new managers promoted to higher roles without specific leadership training. They need leadership development training to help women succeed in any leadership role. Companies serious about closing the gender leadership gap must be prepared to develop a pipeline of leadership-ready managers within the industry”.
