5 Steps to enhance your transition

“Too many executives stumble when making a transition. Errors made in the critical first 100 days of a new leadership role can haunt you for a long time. 

Andrew Neitlich, Director, Center for Executive Coaching

“Worldly realistic, The Executive Transition Playbook is a reminder that business is built on relationships and makes a compelling case that to achieve results in a new role starts with choosing how to lead. This is a book for leaders who want to step up, lean in, and accelerate personal growth in their progressive and sequential career path. Well written, with exceptionally clear reasoning, The Playbook is a great read and a testament to why we should listen to Hilary Potts. It’s a must read for every executive coach, and for anyone who wants to lead as if they’re being coached.”

“This book captures the essence of pragmatic leadership principles. Hilary Potts’ book is a valuable learning tool for progressive leaders. Buy it and apply the principles!”

Lead Your Executive onboarding

are you prepared to get the most out of your First 100-Days

in a new role?

Executives are changing roles at an alarming pace. Over 60% of incoming executives admit they are not adequately prepared for the new role. The risks are high and 40% of executives who change roles or get promoted fail in the first 18 months. The cost of failure runs in the millions, not to mention the loss of productivity, morale and reputation.

The first 100-days are a unique opportunity for leaders to learn and assess the business, to cultivate key relationships and to enhance their own approach to make the business successful. Knowing how to navigate the first 100-days can make the difference between success and failure,

Imagine making terrific first impressions and quickly learning what it will take to be successful and doing it in a way that feels authentic and true to your own leadership values.

We work with executives to develop an Executive Transition Playbook which is a blueprint for the first 100-days and beyond.
