“In The First 90 Days, Michael D. Watkins, a noted expert on leadership transitions, offers proven strategies for moving successfully into a new role at any point in one’s career. Concise and practical, The First 90 Days walks managers through every aspect of the transition, from mental preparation to forging the right alliances to securing critical early wins. Through vivid examples of successes and failures at all levels, Michael Watkins identifies the most common pitfalls new leaders encounter and provides tools and strategies for how to avoid them.”
While the framework imparted within the pages of Watkin’s book will apply to anyone embarking on a career transition, and while I will present information herein to be generalizable, this section was created as a resource for young professionals as they enter into their first role as either interns or FTEs. I hope to encourage thought, dialogue and exchange within this page to provide a resource as you take the first steps into your transition.
