Some hard lessons about hiring and promoting corporate leaders:

Fact #1. 40% of new leaders fail to meet expectations of management in their new role 1.

Fact #2. Cost of turnover is extraordinary! (200 to 250% of annual compensation for senior positions is typical)

Fact #3. The "Soft Costs" of unsuccessful transitions create a huge negative impact that ripples throughout the organization:

  • Lack of credibility in selection process, decision-makers
  • Negative impact on team morale and employee engagement
  • Disruption to productivity
  • Lack of direction / inconsistent direction

Fact #4. Even exceptional new hires commonly struggle with:

  • Lack of clarity of expectations
  • A sense of being overwhelmed
  • Feelings of isolation
