Leadership Ready

Managing people is a different skill set to the technical skill set required to be proficient in your chosen profession. It is often acknowledged that the best sales rep, best engineer, best nurse, best lawyer does not always make the best manager of the team.

We often meet people who have been leading a team for years without any development or direction about the skills required for this new role, instead it is a combination of intuition, luck and learning from mistakes. When you learn from your mistakes you don’t forget the lesson, at the same time there can also be significant personal and business cost as a result, even damage done. This can make people reluctant to take on more senior roles.

When simple models, some theory and then opportunities to practise are provided, people are able to approach managing people with more success. red-group helps people build their managerial courage.

red-group always recommends that a component of any leadership development program includes a focus on developing your level of self awareness. Including one of the assessment tools can be beneficial in this development. The appropriate assessment tool is specific to the person or group and there are explanations on the assessment page.
