Reduce Costly Mistakes - Integrate
Bringing in new talent to your organization is time consuming and costly, and there is a risk for all involved. On top of ensuring that the right person is hired in the first place, it’s just as important – if not more so – that these new employees are supported and retained.
New hires must understand what leadership strengths are required for success, and frequently they are different than the ones they have used in previous roles. All too often, and typically because of previous interview conversations, an incoming employee’s perception of priorities differs from what the organization would like them to actually accomplish. Combine that with a manager and/or team that’s already very busy, it is all too easy for an employee to quickly get off track.
Our leadership coaching focuses on making sure that the transition into the new position is smooth, while also avoiding potential pitfalls. We help accelerate the “ramp up” period by helping new hires understand expectations, ask the right questions, identify power bases and influencers, and develop positive working relationships with their key stakeholders.
In addition to ensurinig that organizational goals are met, onboard coaching helps in retaining new hires, by minimizing their vulnerability while also integrating them into the organization more quickly and efficiently. Motivation is maintained through the inevitable periods of isolation and doubt, and any problems are identified and addressed immediately.
