Achieve in Action
Susan, a recently promoted corporate vice president, had a difficult time shifting her focus from being a technical expert to being a leader of a large team. She had developed a habit of inserting herself in every project and task, causing her new team to feel untrusted, micromanaged, and unsupported.
After working through the discover and progress phases, Susan let go of trying to manage the details for her team. Now, she asks questions instead of telling her team what to do, and allows them to discuss and create solutions. She has redefined her role and redefined the value she provides as a leader.
