The First 90 Days – New Leader Success Program

Do your new leaders deserve the support they need in assimilating into their new role?

This coaching program based on the book The First 90 Days, by Michael Watkins could be a valuable tool for your organization.

Using the roadmap outlined in the book I work with the client to create actions, brainstorm strategies, and analyze the corporate climate, culture, challenges, and opportunities.  In addition, we work together to identify how the client can leverage their skills, experience, and knowledge to create success in the first 90 days of employment.

The Manchester Study of 100 Executives showed that coaching increases productivity (53%), ability to create an effective team (67%), and ability to build an effective relationship with the boss (71%).  In this study, the average ROI was shown to be six times the investment.

  2. Promoting Yourself (Into the Mindset of Your New Position)
