Ep 37: Leadership Identity

Leadership identity, especially as you progress into senior leadership roles, is a journey filled with challenges. As you navigate new expectations and evolve your leadership style, some smoothly adapt, recognizing the need to shed old habits and embrace new skills, while others struggle to shed outdated approaches. Today we discuss the potential pitfalls that arise during this transition and explore effective strategies to navigate them.
