Accelerating Your Leadership Career Through Coaching with Sarah E. Brown

A lot of people get into leadership roles by accident.
Someone excels as an individual contributor and then is offered the opportunity to lead the team.
What happens when the star performer takes over the team?
It can be an incredible move and produce amazing results.
Or, it can end in failure with relationships destroyed.
What's the difference between these two outcomes?
The difference comes down to leadership skills.
Leadership skills are not something you are born with, despite what some may think.
They are skills that are learned and developed over time.
