200-level Leaders

The 200 to 300 journey

The 200-level leader is a reliable, trustworthy producer. The expectation of a 200-level leader on their way to 300-level is subject-matter expertise in their area of the business, as well as the ability to manage multiple strategic initiatives simultaneously, effectively manage competing priorities, and accurately quantify tradeoffs to senior management to enable decision-making. Furthermore, leading at this level includes the development of a strong team and the individual talent on it (to maintain a pipeline of talent and ensure succession) and continuous improvement in their area of the business.

Common pinch point: 300-level thinking requires a 30,000-foot perspective, yet the Manager/Senior Manager is stuck in the operational weeds of the day-to-day.
