Whether it's a move to a new company or a complete career change, career transitions are challenging. Many times this change is the result of a growing passion to try something new and other times external circumstances create career transitions. Regardless, there are proven strategies and support available for you through coaching. I can help you gain clarity on what it is you are seeking. Our work together will help you focus inward to identify what you truly value, craft a life purpose statement and objectively assess your talents. We will explore career choices, work on redefining or refreshing your professional brand, and create an action plan for achieving your dream role. Having a framework, support and accountability to navigate career transitions will dispel self-doubt and help you move forward with purpose and confidence.
The first months in a new role or leading a new team is a “sink or swim” reality for leaders at all levels. Author Michael Watkins' book, The First 90 Days, aptly addresses this transition challenge. When you join a new company or step into a new role, you must quickly learn to successfully navigate the landscape and deliver results. Approaching this time with a personalized Success Plan can make all the difference! I will help you create a systemized roadmap inclusive of the sample items below:
· Clear alignment with your boss or new team regarding goals, performance expectations, necessary resources, and communication/ working styles
· A powerful map of your key stakeholders
· Understanding of the explicit and implicit cultural code
· Accurate diagnosis of your initial, highest value deliverables
· Identifying your immediate, low-hanging fruit “wins”
Throughout your transition, you will benefit from having safe, candid, and insightful coaching sessions that leverage my 35 years of successful corporate leadership experience and coaching expertise. Most of all, you will be ensuring your long-term success by maximizing your first 90 days!
Developing the next generation leaders is key to any organization’s sustainability. For over 30 years, I have worked within Fortune 500 companies to identify and develop high potential leaders. I use self and multi-rater assessment tools, as well as in-depth 360 interviews, to provide these high potential leaders with valuable insight into strengths, opportunities, and potential derailing behaviors. When coaching high potential talent, I provide support, challenge, objectivity, and accountability for measurable behavior change. The ultimate goal is to maximize individual potential, while establishing strong organizational succession pipelines of talent leaders.
