Leadership 101: Transitioning from Peer to Supervisor

Transitioning from a member of a team to a leadership role is both exciting and challenging, and even more so if you are promoted from within a team. This session will focus on practical strategies to create greater self-awareness and establish new habits to enable your best leader self to be your norm. It is part of the Leadership 101 Curriculum.

You will learn to:

  • Identify personal characteristics of your best leader self
  • Determine characteristics of your best leader self that will support your transition to leadership
  • Recognize internal dialog or negative habits that may get in the way
  • Identify opportunities and challenges in your transition to supervisor

You will benefit by:

  • Obtaining tools that will help you establish new habits to lead with authenticity and confidence
  • Developing a personal transition plan
  • Networking with others who also aspire to a future leadership role
