Succeed in a New Role

A tale of two managers, both in new roles, but only one successful….


Joe and Steve are both seasoned managers, respected in their industry, and even from the same university. Both have taken on new positions in great companies. However, while Joe is hitting the ground running and making a great impression, Steve is making some crucial mistakes that could derail his career.


Why the difference in performance?


It is simple. Joe is working with Atrium Advisers to make a smooth transition during his crucial first 100 days in his new role. Steve isn’t.


As a result of his work with us, Joe is assimilating effectively into his new role, including:

  • Clarity about performance expectations, beyond the formal job description.

  • Understanding the culture, to avoid political landmines and adapt quickly to how things get done effectively.

  • Building strong relationships up, down, and across the organization.

  • Getting results at the right pace, while strengthening relationships and building trust and credibility.


Meanwhile, Steve lacks an accurate understanding of the organization’s culture, and already has his boss and team questioning whether the company made the right decision to bring him in. This is not uncommon, because half of outside senior hires fail within 18 months.


If you are transitioning into a new role, be like Joe, and not like Steve. Our 3-month transition coaching program can help you solidify your reputation and avoid costly traps. Or, if you are a Human Resources manager, you can make sure that key new hires get the support they need during their crucial transition phase, and are set up for long-term success.
