Accelerating Time to Impact

Research shows that 50% to 70% of executives fail within 18 months of taking on a role, regardless of whether they were an external hire or promoted from within.1

Despite this, many companies rely heavily on their new leaders to self-manage their transitions. But your new executive deserves your support.

Provide them with the support they need through our executive onboarding. You'll benefit by:

  • Achieving results faster
  • Reducing the chances of failure
  • Building productive relationships and much more

Proper executive onboarding not only guarantees career success for your new hire but also ensures a robust return on investment for you, our valued client.

Onboarding is Much More Than an Office Tour

Consider the facts

  • Effective leadership transitions increase the chances of teams achieving their 3-year performance goals by 90%.2
  • When a leader is having a tough time with a transition, 20% of their direct reports are likely to become disengaged or leave the organization.2
  • Replacing an employee can cost three to four times their salary.3
