People Leaders

Leaders never stop learning


We define people leaders as members of our community who have direct reports and achieve their goals through the efforts of others. Great people leaders move us and inspire us to do our best work. Whether you've recently joined Georgia Tech as a people leader, were promoted as a new people leader, or have been around for a while and want to assess your skills as a people leader, we have resources to help you build skills in this area.

Newly Hired People Leaders

Are you new to our campus community and have direct reports? As a part of the new employee experience, newly hired people leaders are provided with additional resources and invited to attend learning sessions to aid them in successfully navigating their first six months. These resources are designed to equip newly hired leaders with establishing a foundational mindset and provide skillsets for leading others.

Were you recently promoted and now you have direct reports? Making a leadership transition, especially as a newly promoted people leader, can often be a difficult challenge. As such, we've put together a checklist to help you onboard you throughout your first 90 days of your new promotion. These resources and learning sessions will not only help you orient yourself as a new people leader, but also ensure long-term success within your role.
