C-Suite transitions fail often
Most executives not ready for it
Because they are not setup for success in the right way
One third transitions fail
Because an executive does not step up as expected
There is no sounding board
For an executive to ask for non judgemental help
C-Suite transition is difficult and needs to be led effectively
As per a report by McKinsey, executives who made the most successful transitions say it was just as important to align their organizations on what not to do as it was to explain what they would do in their initial agendas
Only 27 percent of respondents believe their organizations had the right resources or programs in place to support their move into a C-level role.
37% Executives rate the creation of a shared vision as the most important transition activity.
Ambiguity, expectations and past success factors are key bottlenecks
An executive coach can help
A coach works with the executive to set clear goals for self and organization, helping the new executive formulate a clear direction of action in the first 100 days. A coach helps create easy wins initially to set momentum for larger wins ahead.
