    Building the foundation for success in a new job

    ~ with Jim Carman

    People changing careers may not have been the new person in a company or organization for a long time -- perhaps it has been many years.

    The initial months on a new job need to be managed carefully in order to build the foundation for long-term success.

    Jim’s presentation will focus on success in a new role and will draw on many of the themes discussed in The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins.

    Topics include:

    -- managing the transition into a new role

    -- accelerating your 'break-even point'

    -- the challenge of communications

    -- sensitivity to body language

    -- balancing multiple offers and verbal offers 

    -- recent interview and negotiating themes.

    About the speaker

    A Certified Association Executive (CAE), Jim Carman is a nationally recognized speaker, writer and mentor on career transition planning, association management, interview preparation, talent management and change management.  

    Jim's career includes service as a Navy pilot for nearly 25 years, highlighted by command at the squadron and wing level of naval forces deployed throughout the Mediterranean Sea, Pacific rim, Indian Ocean, and Persian Gulf.  

    His service in Washington, D.C. includes three years in the Executive Office of the President as Assistant National Security Advisor to the Vice President, initially serving Vice President Dan Quayle and later reappointed by Vice President Al Gore.  In this assignment, he participated in significant bilateral discussions and national security policy development with allies throughout the western hemisphere and Africa.        

    After leaving active duty, Jim initially served as an Airline Transport Pilot with American Airlines and later as a Career and Talent Management Consultant with Right Management, the talent management element of the Manpower Group.    

    He joined the Military Officers Association of America in 2012 and now serves as Vice President for Council/Chapter and Member Support.  Under his leadership MOAA earned the 2012 and 2015 Summit Award from the American Society of Association Executives.    

    Jim has also earned graduate degrees in national security studies and business management, and completed the Senior Executive Training Program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management.
