Clearly defining the manager’s role in onboarding new leaders is critical to an organization’s success. The overall objective in new leader onboarding is to accelerate a leader’s performance in their role by setting clear expectations, building strong relationships and effectively navigating the organization’s culture. Investing in the right actions during the first 90 to 180 days can increase a new leader’s ability to deliver performance results and succeed in a new organization. Most leaders fail not because of their functional capabilities, but because they do not effectively integrate into the organization’s culture. Similarly, organizations often fail leaders by overlooking the need to create an environment where new leaders can thrive.
