new-leadership-roles and leadership-transitionAccording the Corporate Executive Board, new leaders with effective transition planning and execution reach their potential nine months faster than those with average transition processes.

Yet leadership transition coaching is often an over-looked talent strategy, with “sink or swim” as still the norm in many organizations today.

Managing a new role transition proactively and strategically can reap enormous productivity benefits to an organization, as well as support longer term retention and employee engagement of top talent. Leaders in transition don’t need bigger tool kits to succeed. In fact, just the opposite is true.

They need personalized, more streamlined ways to cut through the noise and help them navigate through complexity, uncertainty, turbulence and ambiguity.

Testimonials

I most valued defining potential pitfalls and then coming to a consensus on areas of focus with my coach, boss and HR Business Partner. ~ Director, Medical Device Manufacturer

I felt very supported in my transition. I am on track to achieve my collective wins and feel confident about the transition. I liked the focus on solidifying my leadership position in a pretty established team.
~ V.P. of R&D, Manufacturing Company

There is hardly a day that goes by that I am not putting myself in someone’s situation in order to gain further insight. I really benefited from becoming more aware of the shadow I cast, especially with staff I have limited touches with.
~ Sr. Director, Global Finance Consultancy
