Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Salient Advice Ciampa and Watkins do an excellent job of communicating lessons learned through deep research with new executives about what worked and what didn't as they transitioned to new roles and new companies. They present a very logical, phased approach to managing your transition to a new role, a process which they advise starts during the interview/courting phase. They use many examples throughout the book, which both illustrate their points and make for an interesting read. I have skimmed other "first 90 day" books which, while useful, seem much more tactical in their recommendations. I will absolutely have a much more strategic approach to my next corporate entry thanks to this book.
