Having delivered executive coaching programmes to executives who are new in role, this is no surprise. In the war for top talent, executives are joining companies and finding the culture, role or resources are different to what has been promised.

We have found that structured coaching programmes for a minimum of 6 months to support internal onboarding processes yield significant results. When given a fellow professional to talk through plans, assess and monitor behaviours which display under pressure and maximise strengths in a short window where leadership perception is formed means they will ultimately achieve strategic objectives quickly and more effectively. For the relatively small investment needed to retain the person you've chosen to join your organisation, why wouldn't you help them to be successful?
