THRIVING THROUGH TRANSITIONS
The movement of an executive from one role to another is a challenging time, not only in their own career, but in the ongoing success of an organisation. Of the hundreds of such executive transitions happening daily across the world, McKinsey in 2013 noted that 40% are declared failures after 18 months.
“With strong support and well planned transitions, leaders can succeed more quickly and deliver greater value to their businesses”
This means that the executive is not delivering the performance that was expected when they were placed in the role, leading to lower results, reduced employee engagement and greater staff attrition.
In contrast a strong transition plan with effective coaching support allows leaders to get up to speed quickly and deliver much greater value for their businesses.
We work with executives transitioning into senior general management roles to understand the context of their transition and the specifics of the business challenges they face, whether these relate to leadership capability and organisational culture, or externally with markets and customers. We facilitate leaders’ engagement with the differences in scope, scale and knowledge that are required to perform in their new role.
