Perhaps the biggest pitfall talented people face as they progress in their careers is assuming that what made them successful so far will continue to do so in the future. The dangers of top performers sticking with what they know, working extremely hard at it, and failing miserably are well documented. This danger is most acute in transitions to bigger leadership roles, when the skills that managers or professionals have used to succeed are not the ones they need to succeed professionally.

Who is it for?

Senior HR and OD professionals working on leadership, talent and succession management.


In this masterclass, we will explore:

• role shifts - the core mindset and behavioural changes required in the transition to leadership
• identity traps - that keep successful people stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, and
• self ‘outsight' - processes in which people stretch and grow not by looking inwards but by direct involvement in leadership practices.
