It happens in many businesses... management identifies a good employee and promotes them into a leadership role (e.g.:  manager, supervisor, etc.).  While “promoting from within” is a noble practice, there’s more required of management than changing a title and adjusting salary.  

Paul Spiegelman, CEO of BerylHealth suggests that preparation is key to turning a good worker into a great manager. Consider Spiegelman’s “Must-do” list to set your newly promoted leader on the path to success:
  • Give them a mentor for a period of time.
  • Invest in either internal or external training.

  • Make sure they enjoy the new role.
