Get up to speed faster and smarter in your first 90 days
Your long-term success in your new role depends on your decisions in your first 90 days. Work with Prof. Michael Watkins and create a roadmap for success.

Pre-program

Start your learning with case studies and background reading.

 

Program

Explore The First 90 Days® Transition Roadmap framework and toolkit and apply it. By analyzing your transition challenges and defining your goals (for you, your teams and your organization), you’ll design a plan for your next 90 days and identify ways to deliver results immediately. This learning journey is highly interactive, offering you case discussions, assessment exercises and peer coaching.

 

Post-program

After the program ends, you have the option, for an additional fee, of getting coaching to further develop and implement your plan for the next 90 days. An experienced coach, trained in The First 90 Days® Transition Roadmap framework and skilled in helping leaders accelerate their transitions would work with you 1:1 over the next 30 to 60 days.

 

  • Explore the 8 key steps for a successful leadership transition
  • Analyze your transition challenges
  • Understand how to avoid the common leadership transition traps
  • Define your roadmap and strategy

Throughout the program, you will take part in wide-ranging and challenging discussions, intensive group projects and live case studies. The program design gives ample opportunities for rich interaction with faculty and among peers. 

Participants profile

You are a leader who has recently taken on a challenging new role or will shortly do so. For example, you may be joining a new company or business unit, or have been promoted to a more complex, senior role in your current company. If possible, you should take the program at the latest within four months of formally starting your new job. 

Enabled by state-of-the-art classroom technology, you will interact with a truly diverse group of global peers. Your class will become a trusted resource, encourage your learning journey and surprise you in many unanticipated beneficial ways both during and beyond your classroom experience.
