Transition Leadership
Many companies face a critical shortage of future business leaders and need to develop a strong leadership pipeline to meet the ever-increasing demands of their business. In a typical large company, 25% of the entire management ranks change every year. It takes an average of about six months for new leaders to make a net contribution to their new organizations. Getting off to a good start in a new position is critical to future success. The actions new leaders take during the first few months can have a significant impact on their success or failure. Given the constant turnover of leadership, organizations need to develop a process for preparing newly appointed leaders to lead their businesses.

Our approach accelerates the transition of new leaders, reducing the time needed to improve business results and preventing common mistakes that can damage careers and harm businesses. Our services demonstrate proven significant, positive economic impact to organizations which minimizes the negative impact of failed transitions to include poor financial results, turnover, and negative employee morale and decreased customer satisfaction.

Leadership Transition Services:

The actions new leaders take during the first few months can have a significant impact on their success or failure. Getting off to a good start in a new position is critical to future success. Most newly appointed leaders do not get much guidance on how to take charge in their new roles, and many companies leave these critical leaders to "sink or swim." Failure at an executive level has a ripple effect that can cause a weakness in the leadership pipeline.

Transitions are pivotal times because everyone is expecting change to occur when a new leader takes over. These are periods of vulnerability for new leaders because they lack established working relationships and detailed knowledge of their new role. Leaders who fail to build momentum during their transitions face a daunting challenge from the beginning.
