EM 211 | How to Develop Yourself as a Leader


If you do a great job fulfilling your role, you'll likely get opportunities to lead projects and people. However, transitioning from subject matter expert and independent contributor to leader is like an athlete transitioning from playing on the field to coaching the team. It requires different skills and abilities. Consequently, a promotion into a leadership position often negatively affects the contributions of an organization's top performers, but it doesn't have to be that way. We can begin preparing ourselves and our team members for opportunities to lead. In episode 211, Heather Zempel of National Community Church in Washington D.C. shares how she develops herself and others as leaders at one of the most successful churches in the United States. She also gives us a framework to do the same. Welcome to episode 211.
