CM135 How Did You Get Promoted?!
3 days ago
Were you recently promoted? Would you say it's going well? Too often, new managers find themselves scrambling to lead in the same field where they were once dominant. That's because the way companies promote people to positions of leadership usually has little to do with the skills that will make them successful as leaders. Yeah, we said it. They're doing it wrong. While competence is absolute necessary for credibility as a leader, it's just the baseline. The price of entry. Table stakes. The important question is what does it really take to be successful as a manager? If you want to be one, you need to know. If you want to promote the right people, you really need to know. In this episode of the Counter Mentors podcast, Kelly and Robby take a close look at the flawed reasoning that gets most people promoted to management and suggest some changes you might want to consider the next time you look for someone to fill a management slot.
