New Position: Execute the First 3 Days Flawlessly
Most newbies will never know how much time they could save if they strategically planned their First 72 Hours. Establishing your identity for a new position begins immediately. One little misstep, one misspoken word can halt the momentum inherent to a new position.
The 90-day plan is about getting comfortable in your new position. The First 3 days establish your executive presence so you can execute the 90-day plan flawlessly.
- How clear and compelling is your leadership narrative?
- How will you manage blindspots now that relationship dynamics have changed?
- What are your boundaries? What line won’t you cross?
- How will you establish accountability within the existing system?
As your trusted partner, LJ Coaching helps you lead with confidence.
Create Thriving and Resilient Teams
Transformative leaders help their teams by establishing environments where living in or with the unknown becomes re-energizing and exciting. They establish a culture where curiosity is welcome, and the exchange of ideas is encouraged.
But is this enough? Mega-successful leaders develop and support culture-specific language for their co-creating teams. They know meanings become context and culture-specific and thus the organization’s competitive edge.
The words used to co-create the language percolate into the organization’s compelling story – the story that stakeholders remember. Get started today with the FREE College Story Framework.
Clarify Your Leadership Narrative
Why the story so important. We know mental models often interfere with moving forward, especially through change. When aligning your people is a goal, wrap the institution’s primary purpose in a compelling story. This helps stakeholders align their own mental models with the college’s purpose – you’ve generated intrinsic motivation to take action.
LJ Executive Coaching helps you find your story and the language of your institution’s culture. Start today, download the FREE College Story Framework.
Save Time & Money
Save Time LJ Executive Coaching supports you and your team in using Level III conversation methods. Move beyond debate, silo agendas, and resistance. Instead, channel all that wasted energy into creating lots of new ideas and fast-track the institution to new solutions.
