Your first 100 days in a new leadership position are critical, as they set the foundation for your team's success going forward.

This new fourth edition has been updated with new graphics and tools and expanded with new information learned from real-world clients over the past 12 years.
Many organizations, regardless of size, industry, or geography, realize that it is strategically imperative to effectively onboard leaders into new roles and combine teams during M&A and reorganization.

Updated stories and case studies provide real-life glimpses at how successful leaders navigate tricky situations, and extensive online tools point you toward additional resources as the need arises.
Forty percent of new leaders fail within the first 18 months on the job. When a new leader drops the ball, it's at the expense of the team, the organization, and the leader's track record.

This book shows you how to start getting results right away and dramatically increase your chances for success - by systematically shaping your leadership with intent.

Excellent advice to prepare for final interview

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this book provides excellent advice and concrete examples which will be particularly useful for those who have been asked to prepare for that final interview for a new leadership position by outlining how they will undertake their new role in the first 100 days.

Any additional comments?

It is disappointing that this new version of the book only provides access to the materials and downloads for the previous version of the book. Frustrating and annoying and seems lazy on the part of the provider not to have provided updated links when they are clearly available on the book's own website.
