2:15 PM Enter the Champion - A Guide to Onboarding Senior Leaders

Many organizations are undergoing massive disruptive changes to their business models and bringing in new senior leadership to create organizational change. A hiring committee usually conducts the candidate search and the group that has to put their ideas into action isn’t included in the process. In many cases, these teams and peers had a longstanding relationship with their leader’s predecessor whom they knew and trusted. The new incoming leader has to decide: Do I steamroll in the ideas the executives hired me for? Or do I gain the buy-in and support of my team first?
·         Learn how to coach new senior leaders on how to effectively build trust quickly
·         Find out how to eliminate the drama and loss of productivity that often accompanies new leadership assignments
·         Explore how to design an onboarding program that takes advantage of an intact work team’s skills and allows new leaders to hit the ground running
