100-Level Leaders

The 100 to 200 journey

100-level leaders on their way to 200-level are outstanding individual contributors with solid technical knowledge and a desire to improve continuously. People who consistently demonstrate excellence in their body of work are often promoted to manager. As a new manager, the expectation is that you will manage the work of several people, consistently delivering on time and within budget, thereby freeing up your manager to think and act at a higher conceptual level.

Common pinch point: New managers will resist the vulnerability of delegating while simultaneously taking on more and more in an effort to demonstrate their potential to the organization.

We can all basically think we know who we are and what we value, but I found it helpful and cool to see the actual words on paper that fit my personality. It makes me look at it differently or really, more thoroughly think about how I engage in the world and with others and at the workplace.
