Accelerating Team Leadership

IT Technical People Leader

Nothing is more exciting for individual contributors than receiving their first leadership position. Excellent technical expertise is what propels them into the people leader role, but it can also be their downfall. The promise of our collaborative team leader development programs is in transforming the lone wolf technologist into the leader of the pack. The program can be structured in support of technical team leaders working on collective goals or groups of leaders with common experience and challenges.

Leadership capability is the foundation of a successful organization. The leadership foundation requires the right people, in the right role, with the right skills and processes to enable the “ways of working” as a team toward common goals. In support of these goals, IT Directors and Managers must move from siloed individuals to functional leaders and coaches thinking of the team over themselves.  Throughout the term of this program, the technical expert is transformed into a people leader versed in speaking the language of their business.
