Coming into a new organization is a challenge for any leader. The existing culture, organizational history and stakeholder dynamics can be barriers to a new executive’s success. Much is invested in this individual, and his or her success is crucial to every aspect of the organization. It is important that the transition is successful and organizational performance is maintained during the change.
Executive coaching can be an objective and confidential resource for the new leader. The coach is able to offer feedback based on previous experience and work with the executive to develop a transition management plan that can be used as a guide during the on-boarding process.
“If all difficulties were known at the onset of a long journey, most of us would never start out at all.” (Dan Rather, American journalist)
