In part two, we’re turning our focus to challenging the transition from mid-level leader to business unit leader in Profiles in Courage: Business Unit Leaders.

PDI Ninth House researched thousands of leaders across the globe to uncover critical factors for making a successful transition into the role of a business unit leader. We found that their primary challenge is learning how to manage the often-competing needs of disparate groups, rather than a single team, while managing key metrics.
