Mindsets, Skillsets, and Toolsets to Become an Effective Leader
Leadership Guides for First-level Leaders
What is a first-level leader?
People leaders who have one tier of employees reporting to them are referred to as “first level leaders” because they are the first-line of leaders in an organisation’s hierarchy.
What are the challenges for first-level leaders?
For these leaders, their legacy begins with the opportunity to lead a single team. The greatest challenge is that they’ve been promoted because of their skills, and the organisation wants to see that expertise modelled across its teams – however – these emerging leaders have not been trained in the critical practices of leading a team.
What is leadership?
Very simply, a leadership mindset is “we” over “me”. If your first-level leaders mentality toward work hasn’t changed significantly since they became leaders, it’s likely they’re not actually leading. Leading people is vastly different from working as an individual contributor. It’s also vastly different from managing other people.
"Seek first to understand, then to be understood."
-Dr. Stephen R. Covey
