Rising Stars

Calling all high-potential leaders and new managers. . . Welcome to Leadership!

Congratulations for distinguishing yourself as a promising leader and moving up the organizational ranks to lead others.  That is a huge accomplishment and opportunity!

Whether you are leading others for the first time or your role just increased from leading a few to leading many, you may reach a point where you start to feel overwhelmed. It’s the journey all leaders take as they grow in responsibility.

Once you start leading people you realize your role has become infinitely more complex.  You start to see how hard it is to motivate people, to keep them engaged, to get them to do what you need them to do.

Now your performance is dependent on how well your team does. You might be feeling a loss of control, as if it would be easier to just do everything yourself. But you can’t do it all, nor should you try.  You need to work through your team to be successful.

Many Rising Stars tend to get trapped in thinking: “if only my team was more motivated, more talented, or had better communication skills…”

But we say: look to yourself.  How well are you providing direction and inspiring others into action?  Are you delegating and holding your team members accountable effectively? How willing are you to engage in the tough conversations that drive results?

As a leadership consulting firm we understand the overwhelm, the trial-and-error, and the frustration that comes with rising leadership.  And we have the tools to help you.

“I was thrust upon a huge leadership challenge to lead our quality team upon the departure of my boss, and I found my new position overwhelming. This program helped me not only develop my own leadership skills so I could feel more confident in my role, but taught me how to coach and develop my team so they could up their performance as well. Now our group is seen as a model for others in the company and I couldn’t be more proud. It’s the best investment I’ve ever made in myself and my team.”

“The program has been an amazing resource. Meritage’s rich array of tools, techniques, approaches, and philosophies have yielded great dividends for both me and for my teams. I first worked with them when my department was undergoing significant change. Later, as my career grew, Meritage was a huge help in preparing me for a transition to a new role at a new organization. They helped build my leadership skills, support my teams, and find new ways for our company to better align.”
