Leadership skills from a specialist role
  • Specialist role relevant characteristics
  • Quitting the specialist role
  • Why
  • The choice
  • Leveraging on an MBA
  • The importance of developing personal skills

8
Specialist role relevant characteristics
  • Your expertise provides you with
  • Recognition
  • Power
  • Identification
  • Your main development objective is to constantly
    update and enforce your expertise
  • You maybe believe your area of expertise is the
    most important to the company you focus solely
    on that.

9
Quitting the specialist role why?
  • Dare to reframe - refocus
  • What am I really interested in?
  • What am I really good at?
  • What is really important to me?
  • What success stories do I like the most?
  • Where do I really have fun?
  • If my life was a film, would anybody see it?
  • My own answers there must be something bigger

10
Quitting the specialist role the choice
  • You cannot be both a General Manager and a
    specialist one day you have to choose
  • The choice means giving up something power, an
    identity, a recognition and replace
  • Not everybody will understand
  • The lawyer who became an administrator
  • Don't you miss legal

11
Leveraging on an MBA
  • Good overview perspective
  • Provides new general competences strategy,
    sales, marketing, finance, HR, legal so you
    know what you are talking about!
  • Gives you a reason to move on
  • Gives your company a reason to let you move on
  • Possible replacement of the power, the identity
    and recognition you are loosing

12
The importance of developing personal skills
  • Leadership is very much about personal skills
    so you have to recognize personal skills as
    competencies
  • How to develop your personal skills
  • Training e.g. management, NLP
  • Coaching
  • Mentor
  • International assignments
  • Evaluate your own experiences

13
Last words
  • Leadership skills is very much about being
    practical implementing theory
  • Theoretical background is not a handicap
  • To develop leadership skills means a decision to
    focus and to take the opportunities
  • Get out of the comfort zone!

14
Very last words
  • Leadership Quotes
  • "Behold the turtle.  He makes progress only when
    he sticks his neck out. (James Bryant Conant)
  • "Well behaved women rarely make history." (Seen
    on a bumper sticker in Colorado)
