I. Was. Nervous.

His book changed my life 25 years ago.

You’ve heard this word: Onboarding. If you hire a fast-learning Rockstar, you shouldn’t need to. Just throw them in the pool, right? Wrong.

Michael Watkins is the world’s leading expert on accelerating transitions i.e. Making sure your Rockstar new hire is successful once they join your company. He’s spent two decades studying, learning, and teaching this.

You can totally mess this up. But Michael will make sure that you don’t.

Most notably, his works include the international bestseller The First 90 Days: Critical Success Strategies for New Leaders at all Levels. The Economist recognized it as "the onboarding bible." 1 million copies sold in 24 languages! Amazon declared it “one of the 100 best leadership & success books to read in your lifetime.”

He’s Professor of Leadership and Organizational Change at IMD, the well-known executive business school in Switzerland. Prior, he was Associate Professor at Harvard Business School.

In his role as co-founder of Genesis Advisers, a transition acceleration consultancy, Michael advises executives globally & the firms that hire them.

In this 20-minute episode,  Michael reveals

what you must do as hiring manager in order to ensure a successful ramp up. If you plan to hire even one Rockstar in 2018, you can’t miss this episode.
