The world’s most trusted guide for leaders in transition Transitions are a critical time for leaders. In fact, most agree that moving into a new role is the biggest challenge a manager will face. While transitions offer a chance to start fresh and make needed changes in an organization, they also place leaders in a position of acute vulnerability. Missteps made during the crucial first three months in a new role can jeopardize or even derail your success. In this updated and expanded version of the international bestseller The First 90 Days, Michael D. Watkins offers proven strategies for conquering the challenges of transitions—no matter where you are in your career.

By walking you through every aspect of the transition scenario, Watkins identifies the most common pitfalls new leaders encounter and provides the tools and strategies you need to avoid them. You’ll learn how to secure critical early wins, an important first step in establishing yourself in your new role. Each chapter also includes checklists, practical tools, and self-assessments to help you assimilate key lessons and apply them to your own situation. Whether you’re starting a new job, being promoted from within, embarking on an overseas assignment, or being tapped as CEO, how you manage your transition will determine whether you succeed or fail.

Successful Onboarding: Strategies to Unlock Hidden Value Within Your Organization by Mark Stein,Lilith Christiansen Summary

MASTER THE “4 PILLARS” OF SUCCESSFUL ONBOARDING AND CAPTURE THE ONBOARDING MARGIN Fact: One-third of all external hires are no longer with the organization after two years. Most of them begin job-searching after six months. What can you do about it? In a word: onboarding, the fastest-growing human resources tool in the world today, although poorly understood, subject to narrow definitions, and with limited codified best practice understanding and management rigor. Global consultants Mark Stein and Lilith Christiansen have studied and worked with leading companies on the topic, and they've synthesized their work into one complete, ready-to-use system, incorporating case learnings from Fortune 500 companies and other forward-thinkers. With Successful Onboarding, you can: Realize the best from your talent from the get-go-without wasting time. Rewrite the employee-employer compact-to everyone's advantage. Acclimate new hires to your culture-without scaring them off. Assimilate new employees of all backgrounds-yet benefit from their unique skills. Reduce time-to-productivity-while increasing the level of productivity. Address the specific needs of individual hiring groups-cost-effectively. Make improvements at the systemic level-with gains realized with regularity. While many companies have become very good at recruiting, today's orientation programs fall woefully short and impact your bottom-line potential. Successful Onboarding provides you with not only the business case but also a systemic approach to the entire process, from beginning to end. You'll be amazed how significantly you can increase new hires' productivity and increase the strategic impact and appreciation of your HR function. You'll discover the most effective ways to share your vision, offer early career support, and strengthen your strategic position, intent, and direction. Along the way, you'll hear fascinating inside stories-the good and the bad-from Apple, Starbucks, Netflix, Microsoft, Baird, Bank of America, John Deere, and dozens of other industry leaders. In the end, it's all about people. When your employees are effectively on board and your system is supporting their success, your company is on track to even greater performance. visit author's website for more information http://onboardingmargin.com

The Art of Servant Leadership II by Art Barter Summary

Not many industry revolutions begin with a typical married couple who risk everything to do something they've never done before. But that is exactly what Art and Lori Barter did in 2004 when they purchased Datron World Communications. The husband and wife knew everything about the power of strong values and the lack of values in modern corporations, but nothing about running a large-scale business that was -- at the time -- losing money. It was a test of faith and perseverance unlike any other. Everything from financial security to spiritual fulfillment was on the line. The Art of Servant Leadership II instructs modern business leaders on how to transform their businesses to servant-led organizations that prioritize integrity over profitability and never-ending quests to accumulate power. By integrating the servant-led paradigm into their inner lives and professional thinking, today's leaders can revolutionize heartless corporate strategies that reward the few at the expense of the many. Today, Datron World Communications is a multimillion-dollar, multicultural, international company with customers in more than eighty countries. That success is the result of the lessons taught in The Art of Servant Leadership II and proof that serving others with compassion and humility brings unprecedented rewards.

Hidden Strengths by Milo Sindell,Thuy Sindell Summary

Build a Foundation for Continual Growth In today's turbulent world you need to continually develop new skills to remain agile and adaptive—otherwise, your strengths will become crutches. But contrary to what many people believe, the best way to develop new skills isn't working on your weaknesses—it's identifying and elevating the underdeveloped abilities that lie between your weaknesses and your strengths. Books like StrengthsFinder 2.0 have helped leaders build on what they're best at—but they stop there. If you only go that far you're missing a huge opportunity for professional growth. Leading Silicon Valley consultants Thuy and Milo Sindell argue that relying exclusively on your top abilities can actually hold you back—it's critical that you expand your repertoire of skills. The most effective way to do that is find your hidden strengths—midlevel skills that can quickly be elevated into learned strengths with attention and focus. This book shows you how. Too many people waste their time working on their weaknesses, say the Sindells. Although focusing on shoring up weaknesses on the surface makes sense, they've found that it takes too much time and effort—the ROI just isn't there. The neglected skills in the middle, neither strengths nor weaknesses, are where the most potent development opportunities lie. They're close enough to being strengths that putting your energy there can offer a fast and powerful payoff. Us the Sindells' free online Hidden Strengths Assessment, along with the exercises and case studies in the book, you'll be able to identify your most promising hidden strengths and create a plan to turn them into major assets. In today's work environment, not growing and stretching yourself translates into lack of innovation, stagnation, and obsolescence. You can't keep leaning on the things you're naturally good at or your strengths will become training wheels. But with the Sindells' help, you'll continually develop new skills that will keep you riding at the front of the pack.

Working Backwards by Colin Bryar,Bill Carr Summary

Working Backwards is an insider's breakdown of Amazon's approach to culture, leadership, and best practices from two long-time Amazon executives. Colin started at Amazon in 1998; Bill joined in 1999. In Working Backwards, these two long-serving Amazon executives reveal and codify the principles and practices that drive the success of one of the most extraordinary companies the world has ever known. With twenty-seven years of Amazon experience between them, much of it in the early aughts—a period of unmatched innovation that brought products and services including Kindle, Amazon Prime, Amazon Studios, and Amazon Web Services to life—Bryar and Carr offer unprecedented access to the Amazon way as it was refined, articulated, and proven to be repeatable, scalable, and adaptable. With keen analysis and practical steps for applying it at your own company—no matter the size—the authors illuminate how Amazon’s fourteen leadership principles inform decision-making at all levels and reveal how the company’s culture has been defined by four characteristics: customer obsession, long-term thinking, eagerness to invent, and operational excellence. Bryar and Carr explain the set of ground-level practices that ensure these are translated into action and flow through all aspects of the business. Working Backwards is a practical guidebook and a corporate narrative, filled with the authors’ in-the-room recollections of what “Being Amazonian” is like and how it has affected their personal and professional lives. They demonstrate that success on Amazon’s scale is not achieved by the genius of any single leader, but rather through commitment to and execution of a set of well-defined, rigorously-executed principles and practices—shared here for the very first time.

Talent Wins by Ram Charan,Dominic Barton,Dennis Carey Summary

Radical Advice for Reinventing Talent--and HR Most executives today recognize the competitive advantage of human capital, and yet the talent practices their organizations use are stuck in the twentieth century. Typical talent-planning and HR processes are designed for predictable environments, traditional ways of getting work done, and organizations where "lines and boxes" still define how people are managed. As work and organizations have become more fluid--and business strategy is no longer about planning years ahead but about sensing and seizing new opportunities and adapting to a constantly changing environment--companies must deploy talent in new ways to remain competitive. Turning conventional views on their heads, talent and leadership experts Ram Charan, Dominic Barton, and Dennis Carey provide leaders with a new and different playbook for acquiring, managing, and deploying talent--for today's agile, digital, analytical, technologically driven strategic environment--and for creating the HR function that business needs. Filled with examples of forward-thinking companies that have adopted radical new approaches to talent (such as ADP, Amgen, BlackRock, Blackstone, Haier, ING, Marsh, Tata Communications, Telenor, and Volvo), as well as the juggernauts and the startups of Silicon Valley, this book shows leaders how to bring the rigor that they apply to financial capital to their human capital--elevating HR to the same level as finance in their organizations. Providing deep, expert insight and advice for what needs to change and how to change it, this is the definitive book for reimagining and creating a talent-driven organization that wins.
