How to Successfully Adapt Once You’ve Been Promoted

Reaching a new level in your career is certainly exciting, especially if you’re assuming a leadership role for the first time. This doesn’t mean you won’t face challenges along the way as you transition to a new career peak though. Our Credence Innovations leaders have a few suggestions that will help you ease into your promotion and make the most of it in the long run.

The first thing you must realize is that the power of delegation now sits squarely in your hands and that you are free to assign tasks to others as you focus on big-picture objectives. Don’t fall into the trap of trying to do everything yourself once your unique talents have been recognized; empower your team members to apply their own skills and exceed expectations.

By the same token, our Credence Innovations leaders remind you that you can’t forget what got you to your new position in the first place. Be your authentic self as you adjust to a leadership role, and keep applying your unique perspective to new challenges along the way.

It’s also important to remember that you are the leader of a group of individuals rather than a faceless team. Take time to meet with your associates on an individual basis as often as possible, and let them know they are always welcome to share their thoughts and concerns with you.
