In our recent Power Onboarding Webinar, Michael Watkins and Harvard Business Review Press Executive Editor Jeff Kehoe shared their insights and discussed eight career challenges outlined in the newly updated edition of Master Your Next Move: The Essential Companion to The First 90 Days.
Your next professional move can make or break your career. Are you ready?
In business, especially today, you are only as successful as your next career transition. Do well, and you'll be on the fast track to even more challenging roles. Fail, and you could irreparably harm your career--and your organization.
In his international bestseller The First 90 Days, leadership transitions expert Michael Watkins outlined a set of basic principles for getting up to speed quickly in a new role. Since that book was published Watkins has worked with thousands of leaders, helping them to accelerate their transitions. These leaders posed challenging questions on how to apply the basic principles in real-life situations. The truth that emerged: the First 90 Days framework can be applied in every transition, but the way you apply it is entirely different when you have been promoted to a higher level, or when you are joining a new organization, or taking a role in a different country.
Master Your Next Move answers a distinct need, focusing on the most common types of transitions leaders face and the unique challenges posed by each. Based on years of research, and now with a new introduction, this indispensable book explores eight crucial transitions virtually everyone encounters during their career, including promotion, leading former peers, onboarding into a new company, making an international move, and turning around a business in crisis.
With real-world examples and many practical models and tools, Master Your Next Move is your guide to surviving and thriving as you make your next move . . . and every one after that. Download your free copy of the updated introduction.
Watch the webinar recording and enjoy insights from not one but two seasoned leadership experts into the most common types of transitions leaders face and the unique challenges posed by each, such as being promoted, leading former peers, onboarding into a new company, making an international move, and turning around a business in crisis.
