Gaining promotion and ascending the ranks in the organization is a great feeling. It doesn’t happen to everyone easily. Many have to toil for it and earn it. While this is a well-deserved promotion, it brings with it a dilemma for the newly-promoted employee: how to deal with peers, the very colleagues who she would have superseded to phase into the new position.
This can be tricky at times because of various reasons. When an employee gets promoted, it is not always going to be a pleasant feeling for many or all of her colleagues. Competition, lack of cooperation, jealousy, backbiting and all such negative traits can come to the fore when the colleagues are not comfortable with the rise of one of their own, to whom they would have to report in the future.
The challenge is to maintain cordiality and avoid and prevent bad blood among the team members. The newly promoted employee needs to motivate the team and manage it effectively if it has to be a high performance team. How does she ensure that the team members are going to perform well when they are waiting for an opportunity to bring the new supervisor down?
The ways of doing this is the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, will impart.
