Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Your first 100 days in a new leadership role are critical. They determine the success of your mission, your relationship with your new team, and the trajectory of your career. Turnover is high among new leaders who "didn′t work out," and the costs to them and their organizations are dramatic. However, the odds are in your favor, if you have a comprehensive onboarding plan.

This updated and revised Third Edition of the bestseller The New Leader′s 100–Day Action Plan provides authoritative guidance to prepare exec–utives for an important transition and accelerate their results. Discover the right approach for taking charge in your new role, learn the key steps you should be making before Day One, and engage your new colleagues by fully understanding the organizational culture. This edition also adds a new 100–Hour Action Plan for crisis situations, which has been adopted by the American Red Cross.

With new chapters, sample action plans, and down–loadable forms to help you plan, this invaluable handbook will help you:

  • Assess the business context and internal political culture you′ll be facing

  • Implement the "BRAVE" approach to motivating your new team members by understanding their Behaviors, Relationships, Attitudes, Values, and Environment

  • Provide advice for your bosses so that they′ll know how to help you succeed

  • Use social media and other communication tools to reach and motivate your new stakeholders

The New Leader′s 100–Day Action Plan will help you deliver better results faster. Ensure that you achieve all of your goals in your next leadership role by implementing an effective plan, starting even before Day One.

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 16 Jan. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This basic book drills readers with a fundamental message: Good leaders follow specific plans and put their subordinates first. The authors furnish specific tactics you can use to become a disciplined leader, ready and able to produce a top team. George Bradt, Jayme A. Check and Jorge Pedraza split their material evenly among tips on being a good leader, case studies and printed planning sheets to use to set up your first 100 days on the job. The information is easy to skim; but the authors make some important points, including why you should start meeting key people in the company before you begin working in your new position. We recommend this basic career-building and team-building guide for every new manager's orientation kit. It's a small price to pay to survive and thrive in your new job.

Format: Hardcover
An indispensable guide to starting a new senior or executive role and sailing through the transition, armed with everything you need to know and prompted to examine the areas to focus on for your own situation. Really liked the tone-practical not full of the usual waffle of business books.

This book combines with an app, it is practical and action oriented not full of theory. Leadership in action. Great read.
