Taking leadership skills up a level to inspire other leaders
To ensure a steady supply of leaders with the right skills in the right positions, knowledge-driven organisations need to develop a full leadership pipeline. Leadership Transition Programs, like those offered by TNM Business, support organisations to create this pipeline using a concept based on the model by HR advisor Walt Mahler, a designer of the succession process at General Electric. The concept teaches specific skills and mindsets needed at six different ‘passages’ or ‘transitions of leadership’.
After offering development and training for new leaders in their first passage, companies often ignore the second passage where people move from leading others to leading leaders. This passage is critical to future success, not just for the leader themselves, but for the organisation and their leadership pipeline.
The third passage is that of becoming a functional manager who reports to multifunctional general managers which requires a broader perspective of the organisation and the ability to consider other functional concerns.
TNM Business’ Leadership Transition: Leading Leaders program covers the second and third passages of leadership. It teaches participants specific key leadership concepts – work values, time application and leadership skills – to prepare them for success in their new role as guides and coaches of other leaders.
*This program complements our Leadership Transition: Leading Others program which focuses on the first stage of leadership.
