Abstract/Description

We all experience situations where certain realizations seem obvious after the fact, yet, difficult to acknowledge in the moment. As I reflect back on my numerous struggles with successfully empowering teams, I am overwhelmed with wondering how I didn’t learn the lessons faster. As a result, I’ve committed to helping others be exposed by sharing my personal challenge of transitioning into a leader. Learn about assumptions and expectations surrounding self-managing teams, misunderstandings of the work required to successfully empower, and reasons why this trap is so easy. Leave with altered views on embracing a change in perspective that is required in order to avoid sending mixed messages to your teams. All while, gaining an understanding of the exciting new contributions and challenges you will master as a leader.
