If you consider underlying drivers that made you good at hands-on work, you will discover that those same drivers apply in your new leadership role. The passion for output will be just as applicable in helping you skill up in your new profession as it was with previous one.
The next step is to accept we need to learn new profession. Maybe at some stage you tried a few leadership courses and read some books but, they didnít seem have too much impact. - The difference this time is going to be commitment.
Over next year, and it will take at least that long to make a good start, I am going to focus on what it takes for me to move from simply being a leader to showing leadership. Of endless resources available, I am going to endeavour to highlight just key ones that helped me make start in right direction.
This is not about becoming greatest leader known to man, this is about basics of a profession that I donít remember choosing to be part of and that about which there is so much information I am struggling to know where to start.
Through building a community of people with same challenge, sharing our experiences, and learning together, we will not only regain satisfaction of our previous success, but revel in exhilaration of greater teamís performance.
Join with me and lets us share this experience together. I have a central site (http://2leadership.com) that I am starting to collect resources and will be posting experiences and reviews to. I have set out a very basic agenda, but this journey has a different destination for all of us, so expect lots of changes to path.
Please email me and comment at blog site (http://2leadership.blogspot.com). If you have a specific area or concern you want covered raise it now and letís see if we can build it into curriculum.
Be brave, be famous.
I have found myself leading a team, and I need to learn the craft. Join me in this year long journey.
