EMBA Masterclass: Transitioning to Team Leader – From Expert to Managerial Role

Free masterclass by DTU Executive MBA with Associate Professor Thomas Fischer

Join us for an insightful masterclass exploring the journey from being an expert to stepping into a leadership role. Led by an Associate Professor of Responsible Leadership from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, this session delves into the transformative experience of moving up the career ladder.

In this masterclass, we will address key questions that professionals face when transitioning into leadership:

  • How does the nature of work evolve after moving from an expert role to a leadership position?
  • What changes occur in power dynamics and interdependence upon taking on a managerial role?
  • What skills and strategies are crucial for successfully leading and managing a team of experts?

For this masterclass, we have invited Thomas Fischer. Thomas Fischer is an Associate Professor of Responsible Leadership at the University of Geneva and the Yearly Review Editor of The Leadership Quarterly. His research mainly focuses on the conceptualization and measurement of leadership, how individuals discuss their leadership, and how they adapt their leadership practices to interpersonal and structural demands.
