How the program works
The First 90 Days® is a highly-interactive virtual learning journey consists of pre-program, program and post-program elements. The program runs over 3 half-days.
Start your learning with case studies and background reading.
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.
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.

What our participants say
I highly recommend this program to those who are taking over positions as new leaders. Michael Watkins takes you through a step-by-step process of creating first impressions, working with new teams, and securing early wins.
The diversity of the participants and the interaction with the small teams contributed to this great experience. I was in a team composed of people from very different backgrounds, industries and companies. This diversity allowed me to be exposed to different point of views about our personal transition scenarios.
The content can be customized to the unique requirement of each company but the “First 90 days” approach offers a state-of-the-art process to succeed in a new role.
