Leaders in Transition: The use of coaching to ensure success in a new role

When new leaders join a new organization or get promoted, it’s a time of great excitement and promise – as well as potential for career-limiting mistakes and derailment. The key is an effective onboarding process that helps accelerate an executive’s integration into a culture, enabling them to achieve results quickly. 

Despite well-established research suggesting that a significant number of newly hired leaders don’t survive to their first anniversary, many organizations continue to struggle in their attempts to address the issue. One study noted that 40% of leaders do not last more than eight months in their roles, mainly due to cultural missteps. However, many organizations only provide a basic orientation for newly hired or promoted leaders that does not enable their success. 

In this interactive session, Dr. Nourse will explore the challenges new leaders face in transition and coaching strategies to help establish a strong reputation to thrive.
