Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Your first 100 days in a new leadership role are critical. They determine the success of your mission, your relationship with your new team, and the trajectory of your career. Turnover is high among new leaders who "didn't work out," and the costs to them and their organizations are dramatic. However, the odds are in your favor, if you have a comprehensive onboarding plan.
This updated and revised Third Edition of the bestseller The New Leader's 100-Day Action Plan provides authoritative guidance to prepare exec-utives for an important transition and accelerate their results. Discover the right approach for taking charge in your new role, learn the key steps you should be making before Day One, and engage your new colleagues by fully understanding the organizational culture. This edition also adds a new 100-Hour Action Plan for crisis situations, which has been adopted by the American Red Cross.
With new chapters, sample action plans, and down-loadable forms to help you plan, this invaluable handbook will help you:
The New Leader's 100-Day Action Plan will help you deliver better results faster. Ensure that you achieve all of your goals in your next leadership role by implementing an effective plan, starting even before Day One.
- Assess the business context and internal political culture you'll be facing
- Implement the "BRAVE" approach to motivating your new team members by understanding their Behaviors, Relationships, Attitudes, Values, and Environment
- Provide advice for your bosses so that they'll know how to help you succeed
- Use social media and other communication tools to reach and motivate your new stakeholders
