Transitioning From Friend To Leader
Support yourself to move into a leadership position, and develop your own style.
This course presents you with frameworks, theories and skills to support you in the transition from colleague and friend, to leader and manager. It is very common to move from an existing team into a management position, but making that leap is often under-supported. Through this course you will gain an understanding of the behaviours that are common in leaders, as well as the behaviours to curb during your transition into leadership. Topics such as emotional intelligence, authenticity and interpersonal communication will help you cultivate confidence.
Being a good leader does not preclude being friends with your reports, it does however require you to be mindful of your relationships and acting in a way that promotes success within your team.
