Have you ever walked into a meeting at work and not remembered how you got there? You were just there, you were on time and you were ready to lead the meeting! Have you ever been so wrapped up in what you’re doing and what you’re thinking that you zone out in a meeting only to find people looking at you quizzically and asking impatiently what you think?

First-time managers and experienced managers - “What's your role?” It’s to manage the people that work with you, for you, and to deliver your business objectives, KPIs and goals. As you step into your job, especially as a first-time manager, your ability and your competencies are, initially, more in line with you as a Rockstar individual contributor. We know that when you step into the job, you know you don’t know it all - you are very conscious of that fact! You are at the point where you need direction on how to succeed.
