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. Watkins, a noted expert on leadership transitions and adviser to senior leaders in all types of organizations, also addresses today’s increasingly demanding professional landscape, where managers face not only more frequent transitions but also steeper expectations once they step into their new jobs.

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. Use this book as your trusted guide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food for Thought As someone preparing to move into a new position this was a great read. In an effort to cover as many people as possible, it lacks specifics in some places, but if you focus on the principles it's good food for thought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Break through to Yes I have enjoyed reading Dave Savage's new book. Unlike other business books I found this a really easy read. Entertaining, light yet he has a way of thinking outside the box and making the reader really open their eyes to how collaboration can be a win win alternative. I will recommend it to all my forward thinking friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential reading on collaboration Collaboration is the new key to successful leadership. It is so wonderful to read a book where an author not only understands this, but has spent an entire career walking his talk. The author provides the reader with practical tools for collaborative decision-making. The book outlines how the actions and decisions we make today can impact the future... for the better. His experienced approach to collaboration is a must-read for anyone grappling with ethical leadership and looking for workable and practical approaches to collaboration.
