Join this masterclass program if you are a senior individual contributor looking to improve your leadership skills.
This masterclass is limited to a small group and requires each to contribute 300 USD to a charity of their choice to be eligible to join this masterclass. You will be asked to provide proof of your contribution. Based on interest, I might offer repeat sessions.
Attendees must have at least ten years of experience as individual contributors, as the material we cover may not be useful for the less experienced.
In most organizations, senior individual contributor roles are some of the toughest to succeed. Organizations expect individuals in these roles to demonstrate several aspects of leadership, such as setting and influencing the direction of several teams, driving consensus, dealing with conflict, establishing standards and procedures, and leading and mentoring others. For most, developing the skills to meet such expectations without the ability to manage and control resources (like people and budget) seems like a frustrating task.
This program includes two parts:
Part A: A two-hour masterclass. In this part, we will broadly cover three topics:
The material is based on my personal experience, lessons observed from coaching several individual contributors, and a few of my lectures in private settings.
Part B: A 45-min one-on-one coaching session.
In this session, we will discuss your context, unique challenges, and potential opportunities. We will also develop and review a self-development plan.
