Transitions - New roles

Figure Ground Consulting

...in a new country, company or level – and often all three. We accompany the leader over a 6 month period using a range of tools developed from our research. The leader benefits by avoiding the typical traps of arriving in a new role and by getting both feet under the desk more confidently; the organisation benefits by avoiding the expensive ‘sink or swim’ practices commonly associated with new senior hires. We offer role transition coaching in a number of formats: one to one, for teams or for groups of transitioning executives, such as after mergers and acquisitions.

Bridget Farrands worked with the South African Government to improve the transitions of incoming government ministers and public officials. The paper attached, written by 2 of her colleagues in the project, describes the relevance and use of transition support for leaders taking up significant new roles.
