Many technical experts stumble when they are moved into positions of leadership, especially when it comes to managing people. Many have moved into these positions as part of their career progression and not really by choice. Given the option, they may have liked to pursue a more technical career rather than a managerial one. They often lack self-confidence when it comes to managing as distinct from doing things themselves.
As I have said many times before, I admire those who put across their ideas in simple yet effective terms. See this great example in Seven Steps To Boost Leadership Self-Confidence, Here, coaching guru, Marshall Goldsmith explains in simple terms what those lacking in self-confidence need to do.
You won’t find heavy jargon here but you do find a comfortable confidence-inspiring tone and above all, a lot of wisdom behind these simple words.
I am sure this article will clarify doubts that budding leaders may have just as it lays down useful tips for current leaders.
