Becoming a New Manager - Todd DeLuca - STC Summit 2015
Have you wondered how to transition from a sole contributor to a manager? What if there are few opportunities to advance? How do others recognize your potential? Maybe you’ve just been thinking about that ‘leap’ but don’t know if leading others is for you.
If you’re not sure where to start, then review this informative session and learn from someone who has been there. Todd DeLuca outlines his experience of being a lone writer to leading a Technical Communications department. More specifically, he describes activities and actions that helped him demonstrate his capability to decision makers that helped him stand out as a potential leader (to get the job) !
Everyone’s leadership path follows its own course. After viewing this session, you’ll have pointers on how to pave your own path and receive some ‘newbie’ advice on what you should do when you reach your destination.
