Bringing Young Leaders Forward

October 23, 2014
According to Brad Federman, Chief Operating Officer at F&H Solutions Group, in the life span of our careers, we start as sponges absorbing all there is to know about our new job. With time, we become problem solvers, or masters in our particular field. Then, typically, we are promoted to leaders. However, many people fail to realize the skill sets required of an expert for the field or a problem solver are significantly different than the skill sets required for a leader.  Federman says 70% of people fail within their first two years of becoming a leader for this very reason.  That’s why it is so important to promote people who have leadership qualities, and invest in developing their “leadership” skills.
