A Strategic Approach to Executive Onboarding

July 29, 2014

Half of newly hired executives quit or are fired within the first three years. Almost as many who change jobs or are promoted (40%) fail within the first 18 months. With such alarming numbers and the high costs of executive recruitment, why do more organizations not have a formal executive onboarding approach to assimilate executives for success?

To provide insight into the importance and impact of a strategic onboarding approach, Career Partners International, one of the largest talent management solution providers in the world, hosted a webinar entitled “Ex-celerating Success: The Power of Executive Onboarding.” The panel moderator, Barbara A.F. Greene, summarizes and discusses the concepts introduced during the webinar.

What are the high-costs of leaving your executive onboarding to chance?

Research shows that 50% of newly hired executives quit or are fired within their first three years, and 40% of executives who change jobs or are promoted fail within the first 18 months. With the cost of such turnover estimated at 40 times base salary for those at $100k to $250k, why have only 37% of organizations invested in a formal onboarding program? Whether an external or internal hire, onboarding or cross-boarding, assimilating leaders in their new roles increases performance and accelerates success for both the individual and the organization!

Join us on June 12, 2014, for a complimentary webinar as our distinguished panel shares the importance and impact of a strategic onboarding approach! Career Partners International is pleased to provide this complimentary one-hour webinar to our clients and guests around the world.

Developing Team Members Using a Coach Approach

April 16, 2014

by Barbara A.F. Greene

Are you a coach or an old fashion boss? 

This is a question that all leaders should be asking themselves.

In his book, Coaching for Leadership, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, who was recently recognized as the #1 leadership thinker in the world by the Harvard Business Review, explains the distinction between being a coach and being a boss. It gives us pause as leaders to consider what our approach is and the impact it has on the people we lead. Take a look at the distinctions suggested from the book. What do you think?



1. Push, drive people 1. Lift and support people
2. Talk at people, tell, direct, lecture 2. Engage people in dialogue
3. Know the answers 3. Seek answers
4. Trigger insecurity through administering a healthy dose of fear as an effective way to achieve compliance 4. Use purpose to inspire commitment and stimulate creativity
5. Control others through the decisions they make 5. Facilitate others to make and implement their own decisions
6. Point out errors 6. Celebrate learning
7. Delegate responsibility 7. Model accountability
8. Create structure and procedures for people to follow 8. Create a vision and promote flexibility through values as guidelines for behavior
9. Believe in doing things right 9. Believe in doing the right things
10. Believe that their power lies in their knowledge 10. Believe that their power lies in their vulnerability
11. Focus on bottom line 11. Focus on the process that creates the bottom line result

For some people using a coach approach comes naturally, while others must focus on learning and applying the coach approach skills. How does a person learn these skills without derailing their careers or the careers of others?

In order to use a coach approach, a person must first be willing to learn new ways of leading to experience the positive impact it has on themselves, their team and their organization.

I encourage leaders who want to develop their coach approach to do the following:

  • Find a mentor who exemplifies the coach approach and learn from them: follow them in meetings, follow them down the hall and listen to their conversations, and ask them questions
  • Determine the skills that are needed such as active listening and feedback
  • Participate in a formal coaching program either 1:1 or a small group environment
  • Serve on a board of directors of a charitable organization where you must use a coach approach to influence volunteers to show up, be committed, engage accountability and make a difference without  any monetary compensation tied to results

What will you do to develop your coach approach?
