Building the foundation for success in a new job

~ with Jim Carman

People changing careers may not have been the new person in a company or organization for a long time -- perhaps it has been many years.

The initial months on a new job need to be managed carefully in order to build the foundation for long-term success.

Jim’s presentation will focus on success in a new role and will draw on many of the themes discussed in The First 90 Days by Michael Watkins.

Topics include:

-- managing the transition into a new role

-- accelerating your 'break-even point'

-- the challenge of communications

-- sensitivity to body language

-- balancing multiple offers and verbal offers 

-- recent interview and negotiating themes.
