It’s a common mistake to promote star employees into leadership roles before they’re ready, or before they fully understand their new responsibilities. Both you and the employee in question can end up feeling dissatisfied if you move too quickly. Becoming a manager is a big step, and it takes any employee time to adjust to the additional expectations.

In this episode, Suzi Alligood, VP of People Development & Culture at Xenium, shares what Xenium learned recently by going through this exact scenario. We’ll discuss the steps employers can take to ensure they have a proper leadership development plan in place. We’ll also identify the skills needed to move into leadership and how to develop them before that transition into management takes place.
