Transitioning Into Technical Leadership
Helping Technical Experts Become Effective Leaders

Technical experts who receive a sudden promotion to a leadership role often have little time to plan for the transitioning process.

What’s Covered in the Course:

This application-oriented program is designed to support the participant’s transition from the role of technical professional to leader. Emphasis is placed on the process of transitioning and the development of three related competencies: communication, motivation and delegation. Through experiential learning activities, participants apply program concepts to their relevant work situations.
