Executive and Management Onboarding
Executive onboarding is for people moving into new roles. This type of coaching occurs during the first 90 days of a manager’s or executive’s hire – the time when lasting impressions are made, when grasping what is expected is critical, and when understanding the nuances of an organization’s culture is all-important.
Research indicates four out of ten newly promoted executives fail within 18 months. LRI’s onboarding process can reverse that trend by providing practical and customized coaching to new managers in several areas, including: defining roles and responsibilities, laying out communication expectations, managing effective decisions, and delineating short-term and long-term objectives.
The return on investment includes:
- Increased success for the transitioning manager/executive
- Increased employee satisfaction
- Improved business results
Succession coaching is the process by which leaders ensure they have talented people ready to move into senior positions. It can help you identify the key competencies leaders need for success within the larger context of the organization. We can then help you identify up and coming managers, provide coaching , and plan for their regular exposure to new stretch assignments. This integrated approach ensures that the organization optimizes its bench strength quickly and efficiently.
- Identifying key competencies
- Building bench strength for key roles
- Aligning ready talent with the strategic direction of the larger organization
- Filling key openings quickly from within
