THE STEP UP: MOVING TO EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
There is a moment in a management career when your point of view changes: from tactical to strategic, from function to company, from process to culture.
This is the step up to executive leadership.
Twenty years ago I promoted a member of my team from Director to VP for the first time. I realized I wanted them to understand how different their job would now be. How their new role had so much more to it - more vision, more breadth, more leadership.
So I wrote down a few notes under the heading "How to Be a VP" and passed them along to my newly minted leader. Five years later, he pulled a battered printed copy out of a pocket and said "I just used these. Again..."
This course is the continuation of my learning from decades of startup leadership, and hundreds of coaching sessions with executives and soon to be executives at growth companies in San Francisco and world wide.
It teaches you to take the step, successfully and with confidence.

you see that challenges are coming towards you fast as an executive, and want to get ahead of them, to expand your capabilities, now.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
