Spreadsheets, Struggles and Strategic Vision: Making the Transition From Tactical Management to Senior Leadership

Making the transition from tactical management to senior leadership is a progressive journey. There are stages when leaders must shift from individual contributors into strategic senior management and, later, executive leadership. Stepping into a role that requires the management of managers, and strategic leadership can often be as big an adjustment as the first step into management but is much less often discussed. This transition often takes place in two stages, starting with the “messy middle” where a manager must flex between the tactical management and the strategic, before shifting into the executive leadership space that maintains an almost exclusively strategic focus.

This panel will explore some of the critical mental shifts and work style adjustments needed to be successful through both stages. It will cover common pitfalls, new skills needed and questions for aspiring leaders to reflect on as they prepare themselves for upper management.
