When new people come into an organization things get disrupted. When change happens at a leadership level (C-level) it's even more disruptive. Organizational priorities may shift; opportunities may be missed; decision making processes may get murky and key relationships become unsettled. In many organizations this process of getting someone up-to-speed takes a few months. There are tours, one-to-one briefings, team meetings and the like. But government and business leaders may be asked to set policy or make decisions before this institutional knowledge is fully transferred. Transition meetings are the way that innovative organizations are collapsing that "getting up to speed" time.
Transition meetings 1) establish a framework for effective teamwork and leadership and speed the process of reaching high performance.
In a 1-2 day session, your leadership team will have:
A shared understanding of the group's mission and its value to customers
A "picture" of excellence
Identification of the talents residing in the group
A sense of common direction and priorities
Insight into key opportunities
Agreement on critical success factors
A tactical agenda
