New Leaders Need More

Leadership tip: Let’s stop rewarding high performers by throwing them into a job they aren’t trained for, offering them little training, clarity, or support, and hoping they’ll figure it out...

Isn’t it funny that we reward people who do their job really well by:

  • Taking them out of their technical role
  • Putting them in a different role that requires a very different mindset and skillset to succeed (leadership)
  • Giving them very little training, coaching, or support
  • Requiring them to guess the expectations, goals, and strategy they need to meet
  • Pointing a finger at them when they aren’t getting the results the company is expecting?
