Michael Watkins on Navigating Your Career Transition

Transitions into new roles are the crucibles in which leaders get their toughest tests, and they’re the defining factor in professional careers today. Yet far too often, leaders fail to transition effectively into new roles. The resulting costs are high, for your career and the organization.

In Your Next Move, leadership-transition guru Michael Watkins shows how leaders can survive and thrive in all the major transitions you will face during your career, including promotion, on-boarding into a new organization, and making an international move. With real-life examples and case studies, he illustrates the defining hurdles associated with each type of transition.

Michael D. Watkins is the cofounder of Genesis Advisers, a Newton, Massachusetts-based leadership development firm specializing in transition acceleration programs and coaching. He is the author of The First 90 Days: Critical Success Strategies for New Leaders at All Levels (Harvard Business Press, 2003).
