“As a result of being promoted to Manager of my department in addition to my sales position, I was struggling to wrap my head around my “To Do List”. The list was ever growing and the least important things took up too much of my time. To say I was frustrated was an understatement. I needed help to get out of the rut I was in.”
Vice President, Banking Industry
One of the hardest things that newly promoted leaders have to learn is that the skills that got them where they are not going to be the skills that are going to get them where they need to go. They have to learn how to go from ‘task oriented’ to vision oriented very quickly. So we worked individually with Manager to strengthen their leadership skills. We identified what their goals and priorities were, taught them strategies for effectively communicating and delegating to staff, moving through that ‘To Do’ List with less stress and more success, and how to stay calm and focused when under pressure, while keeping an eye on big picture.
“Cookie helped me clarify what was most important. Once I knew what my priorities were I was able to make decisions based on those priorities. She helped develop new strategies to handle my day to day time consumers and developed a clear path to where I wanted to go.”
