Making the shift from technical or functional expert to a broader organizational leader is not often easy. It is a road paved with many pitfalls, stalls, and few guideposts. In today’s changing and competitive business environment, making this shift is more critical than ever; companies and organizations need employees with technical capabilities and individuals need to grow.
