Being a manager is HARD.
You’ve worked hard in your previous role and even though things weren’t always easy, you knew how to get better at it.
You’re recognized for your hard work and expertise.
And now you’ve finally earn the promotion you’ve always wanted. Except, you don’t feel as happy as you thought you would.
You have one-on-ones with your direct report frequently but inside, you sometimes wonder if senior management has made a mistake in promoting you.
You make sure to put out any fires and check in on the team frequently but you’re feeling overwhelmed and at a loss if you’re doing the right things.
You’ve inherited direct reports who are underperforming. You know you’re letting the rest of the team down by not doing anything but at the same time, you’re afraid your direct feedback will ruin your relationships with them.
You’ve told the team what they need to do but for some reason, they fail to deliver what they promised, again.
You can’t seem to get a handle on this new role. The self-doubt you have about your own abilities and the unmotivated team members are making you wonder if you’re cut out for this role. All you ever wanted is to feel confident, capable and be a manager the team looks up to.
You know that being a great manager can be learned.
You know that with support and guidance, you will improve.
I get it because I’ve been there.
I was on top of the world when I finally got promoted only to feel very challenged and stressed out soon after.
I stayed busy to keep on top of things, to give the impression that I know what I’m doing but inside, I was overwhelmed and lost.
Now that I’ve had years to hone my skills, I learned that you don’t have to learn this the hard way like I did.
I’ve created the 4 Weeks to a Confident Manager program specifically to help other new managers like you.
Imagine this for yourself.
You look forward to your one-on-ones with your direct report because you’ve built a trusting relationship with them and this way of working is actually pretty fun.
You lean on the team to solve any pressing issues as needed because they love the freedom and creativity you’re giving them and you now have time to work on more strategic planning.
You’re not afraid to deal with underperformers. In fact, there’s been a few who have really turned things around and you couldn’t be more proud.
You facilitate meetings to ensure your team is aligned on the purpose of the next project and then you stay out of their way because you’re able to trust that they will get the job done.
What Marc think of this program...
Since working with Ling, I have been able to become conscious of when I am sliding back into my old way of being too tactically focused. It has allowed me to remain strategic and even more importantly, to move to my default set point to strategic, the goal of the coaching program.
I was impressed by how well prepared she was and just how insightful she were when listening to me. She has the ability to pick up on the key moment, phrase or thought that brought breakthrough moments in my self-awareness.
As a new senior manager transitioning from an individual contributor role the cadence of regular meetings with specific exercises between them provided a framework to manage the massive changes I was experiencing.
I would highly recommend Ling’s services to someone who is honestly committed to change and who has the ability to self-reflect. While I have no doubt most people would benefit from her skills, her intuitive sense would most benefit someone who is willing to let go of their pre-conceptions and explore just why they might behave the way they do and how to change.
Managers should know that Ling is committed to helping you achieve the best you can and that she is willing to travel with them on the journey.
Our coaching sessions came at a timely point in my career as I negotiated a major transition from individual contributor to manager.
I highly recommend anyone moving through a similar transition find a coach that they can work with to accelerate their learning, it can be a game changer.
