It’s hard to know if you’re ready for the next level. After all, you’re not there yet! And sometimes it’s hard to know how to where to turn to live up to the potential of your new promotion. You want to grow into your role, but how do you know where you’re greatest growth opportunities lie?
When you’re struggling with these issues, you’re in danger of succumbing to The Peter Principle and you need to find leadership training programs that will help you develop the emotional intelligence skills to thrive in your management stretch zone.
Are you vulnerable to The Peter Principle?
Many believe that the myth that the Peter Principle means that you are rising to your level of incompetence. What the Peter Principle really is:
“Advancement in position is based on the candidate’s performance in his or her previous roles rather than performance on current role.”
In other words, you’re ready to lead at the next level when you’re ready to manage the people problems those leaders face daily. And you’ve fallen victim to the Peter Principle if you’ve been promoted because of technical success, not because you can manage problems–and people–at the higher level.
To succeed at the next level, you don’t have to be the best in your job. However, you must be adept at managing and motivating groups, influencing peers, and developing the careers of those around you.
This is what it means to be “InPower.”
