Organizational Transitions

"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things." ~ Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513

Hiring an executive leader is a costly, time-consuming, and labour-intensive process. The less you and your organization have to go through it the better.

That means that when you do hire someone, you've got to get it right. And you want your new executive to hit the ground running and start making valuable contributions right away.

It's no secret that hiring from within has a higher success rate. But it is important to identify internal candidates early on and then develop them to successfully move into their new executive roles.

Whether onboarding a new leader or identifying and fast-tracking an executive for succession, Dave Loney understands the unique orientation and development needs of leaders.

Successful executive transition means ensuring that your new leader has a strong action plan to take the right first steps, navigate effectively through your organization, and start contributing sooner.

Estimates range from 38 per cent to over half of CEOs fail completely within their first 18 months, and many more fail to meet the expectations that led to their hire.

It's your lead.

A word about my tagline and logo...

"It's your lead" is a mountaineering term that signals someone that it is their turn to forge ahead.

My logo represents a mountaineering tool used by the leader to secure a chosen route.

These concepts align with my coaching style: I accompany my clients on their leadership journeys and facilitate as they choose their own best routes to personal and professional success.
