Is technical excellence crippling your managers?

We see it everyday: individual contributors are promoted to managerial and leadership roles by virtue of their competence. Because they excel technically, the organization assumes they will excel at managing people or leading the business. There’s only one problem:

This isn’t just a promotion; it’s an entirely new job.

The truth is the technical expertise that makes most individual contributors success isn’t what will make them successful as leaders of the business. Yet every year we work with organizations who promote their best individual contributors into leadership roles, only to be surprised when they struggle.

Your organization doesn’t have to be one of them.
