First 90 day induction


Dear all -

Do you have any thoughts as to the content of best-practice first 90 day induction programmes for senior managers and directors?

best wishes

  1. Rapid, deep immersion while retaining perspective

    Here are some thoughts based on some “100 day” coaching programmes I have run. Not comprehensive by any means, but hopefully a thought-starter or -stirrer

    1. Organisational structure at overview and detailed level.
    2. Review of vision and culture for the organisation including level of buy-in and commitment
    3. Review of existing 12 month goals, strategies and plans for own department/ area of responsibility and for direct reports
    4. Review of communication cascade process and a relevant test of its effectiveness in the participants’ areas
    5. Review of individual 12 month objectives and development needs with direct reports
    6. Review of quality of working relationships with participants’ relevant Leadership Teams, direct reports and broader network 7. Identification and route map to achievement of quick wins

    For me, this induction period is as much about preserving these senior contributors’ independence of observation and thought as it is about familiarising themselves with the people, culture, processes and technology in their new workplace.

    Hope this helps.

    All good wishes
