According to leadership guru, Ken Blanchard, new managers aren’t ready to lead. This simple truth is self-evident in the world of technical leadership, where the best individual contributors are assumed to ‘have what it takes’ in management, and are left to struggle through their own painful leadership development. Many don’t make it.

The simple question you should ask yourself is, what are you doing to end this cycle and develop the leaders that report to you?

This problem is the precise reason that Brilliant Training exists. To provide core skills for new technical managers and enhancing skills for more experienced technical leaders. (You should also see our own research on technical leadership.)
