Interested in what it takes to transition into L&D leadership for the first time? In today's episode of The Overnight Trainer Podcast L&D Leader Heidi Kirby shares her experience transitioning from higher education, to corporate L&D and then most recently to an L&D leadership position. If anyone knows Heidi, you know this episode is FULL of goodies like:

🔀 What prepared Heidi for her transition from an L&D individual contributor role to a leadership and people manager role

😑 Common misconceptions people have about going from an L&D individual contributor to a people leader

📚 What led Heidi to her decision to pursue her doctorate in Instructional Design and Technology (Dr. Kirby in the house 🏡)

☎️ What she looks for when she's adding people to her team, now that she is on the hiring manager side of things

🤝 How Heidi's volunteer work shaped her as a new L&D leader, and her advice to any brand new L&D leaders

We also geek out on Learning Cluster Design, which by now shouldn't be a surprise to anyone! 🤣

P.S. I make a few important announcements in the beginning of the episode, including letting y'all know I am sunsetting 1:1 Career Coaching at the end of this month. I have 4 spots left for this 3-month container, so if you are looking to get your dream L&D job by the start of the new year, schedule a FREE consultation call with me here.
