“A coach is invaluable to a new manager or transitioning leader.”
How do I know? Because I was once that new leader – wanting to feel competent as a new manager, but instead feeling like an imposter, in over my head. I’d spent more than a decade training, taking classes and preparing for the role of leadership. And that first year as a new manager was the most exciting, the most demoralizing, and the most confusing time in my career.
