Leadership transitions are some of the toughest challenges people face. Nearly half of new leaders fail in their first 18 months. Often, failure is the result of crucial mistakes made in the very beginning that can be devastating for organizations and leaders alike. And make no mistake about it – anyone that thinks the next 100-days will be like the last 100-days is in for a terrible surprise. This is why we’re all new leaders all the time.
The International Executives Subgroup of the Greater Philadelphia Senior Executives Group has produced its first video podcast, featuring a March 22, 2011 presentation on effective onboarding for new executives, by George Bradt, managing director of PrimeGenesis, a human resources consultancy.
The program, “The New Leader’s Playbook: Getting Better Results Faster,” is available at no cost in the video player below.
George Bradt has a unique perspective on transformational leadership based on his combined senior line management and consulting experience. He progressed through sales, marketing and general management, literally around the world, at companies including Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and J.D. Power’s Power Information Network spin off as chief executive. Now he is a Principal of CEO Connection and Managing Director of PrimeGenesis, the leading executive onboarding and transition acceleration group he founded in 2002.
