Are you uncertain what kind of leader you want to be?
Are you lacking confidence around your new promotion?
Are you concerned you may not make it past your first 90 days?
Are you a functional specialist needing to develop more commercial skills?

I regularly work with newly appointed leaders to successfully handle the first 90 days in a new role where it is less about what you do and much more about how you come across. The first 90 days are crucial and you need the very best experience and knowledge on your side. I use my in-depth knowledge from recruitment and my expertise as a coach to work with you to find out what kind of leader you want to be, help you build your confidence and support you as you establish your new identity.

What can you do to ensure your first 90 days are a success?

Some do’s and don’ts
Do think about what kind of impact you want to make. In the first 90 days it is much more about how you come across rather than what you do.
Do find ways to build up your confidence. What are three quick wins to help you do this?
Don’t project the old company culture onto the new one. Have an open mind. Find out what the new company expects of you.
Don’t hold back so that new colleagues don’t get to know you. This will leave you wondering how long you can sustain it. Instead think about what kind of leader you want to be.
