Help newly promoted leader 'own' her new role with greater confidence and gravitas.
The client was promoted from a corporate staff position to become communications leader for a large division of a Fortune 50 Company, reporting directly into the division CEO. She wanted to quickly establish credibility and develop strategies to influence her colleagues, a male-dominated and long-tenured leadership team.
We focused on four steps to ensure her quick success:
- Leverage her strong EQ to build trust and earn respect amongst boss and peers
- Become a confidante to the CEO and other members of the leadership team
- Develop, inspire, and expand the capabilities of her direct reports
- Trust her instincts and take smart professional risks
