The Leadership Transition

Becoming a leader is within your reach

You have strong management experience. You’ve been told you have leadership potential. You know you can make a larger impact. You are poised to take the leap. How do you prepare yourself for the critical transition to a greater leadership role?

The Leadership Transition is an extraordinary, unconventional opportunity to invest in your professional success as a leader. Reflect on your individual leadership style and develop a plan to expand your comfort zone. Strengthen your coalition-building and influencing skills, and learn how to use power constructively. Examine the best practices for managing change. Learn about the systemic factors in your work environment and in your own behaviour that can work against your plans. Most importantly, join a vibrant, international network of aspiring leaders and discover the keys to your future impact.
