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.
-- 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.
