HBR video on transitioning through leadership levels

This post appeared in LinkedIn recently, and we thought we’d share it for those leaders who are considering a move to more senior leadership roles.

As this video shares, ‘making the leap from unit-level manager to company-level executive requires some key changes to your leadership style.’

This 7 minute video shares 7 seismic shifts managers need to make:

  1. from specialist to generalist
  2. from analyst to integrator
  3. from tactician to strategist
  4. from bricklayer to architect
  5. from problem solver to agenda setter
  6. from warrior to diplomat
  7. from supportive cast member to leading role

This video suggests skills you need to develop, opportunities to explore, and gives tips for how these could play out.
