Most leaders make critical mistakes in their first 90 days on the job. They try so hard to get it right but they go about doing so in all the wrong ways.
- They bring old baggage into new positions.
- They fail to forge win-win relationships with the people that can make or break their success story (it's probably not who you think it is).
- Their big vision is shot down as "impractical, unsustainable, over budget" or any other number of excuses from small-minded people.
As a result, transitioning leaders quickly lose their fire and zeal and are left feeling discouraged, disillusioned and disappointed--or what I call, "the 3 fatal D's." And don't even get me started on what this does to their team.
