One thing is certain about today’s leaders: technical competence alone is not enough to make them successful. They need leadership capabilities and skills. We’d argue that moving from the job of expert to organizational leader represents a unique challenge that, in practice, is more complex and has far greater individual and organizational impact than just adding more technical knowledge. Being an organizational leader, requires shifting from relying on technical competence into being business and results focused. This means acquiring and developing leadership skills and competencies which are distinct from technical expertise.
This session will outline the specialized elements of program design to meet the technical experts’ targeted development needs. We will share insights and discuss best practices from our work with hundreds of technical experts in both 1:1 coaching and leadership development programs. Session participants will get the chance to identify their own key takeaways to develop their organization’s technical super stars, using a signature “next steps” exercise.
