Discussing Your New Leadership Role

Discussing Your New Leadership Role

Updated May 23, 2018

When you take on a new leadership position, there are a number of changes that happen including your relationships with others. Those who were once peers may now be direct reports; others who once held higher positions may now be peers. Having conversations with these individuals to discuss your changing relationship is important. It helps create understanding and set clear expectations for how things will be different. This course presents six crucial conversations you should have as you make the transition to a leadership position: Friends, Your Team, New Boss, New Peers, Your Former Boss, and Yourself. These conversations help facilitate successful work relationships, and create the foundation for an effective transition from Bud to Boss. By completing this course, you will be able to plan and conduct productive conversations with those you will work with in your new role. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute). An Elearning! Magazine Excellence Award Winner: Management Development Learning Track.
