40 Percent of Leaders Fail in a New Position after 18 Months
Is your leadership success transferable from one company to another or from one position to another?
Research shows that 40% of leaders fail after 18 months in a new position. The biggest cause of derailment is NOT:
- a lack of team skills
- or a lack of relationship skills
- or a lack of business drivers
- or a lack industry experience
The biggest derailer is a misfit with the corporate culture.
So how do you find out a company’s corporate culture? Culture is so intangible!
Ask employees what the corporate culture is and you will get general fuzzy statements.
But ask how you are rewarded in the company to be promoted? What gets you demoted? What limits your career?
THIS will allow you to gauge the corporate culture and values.
Adapting your leadership skills across different corporate cultures will fast tract you from Overwhelm to Thriving in a new role or position.
