It Starts with “Us” – The Importance of Leadership Team Alignment by Alysun Johns

Leadership is indeed a position and level within an organization, but how we lead is our choice. More importantly, how we work with our fellow leaders can help us inspire the best in our teams, be true role models for members of the broader organization, and shape our culture in a more positive and Constructive way.

CEO Transitions: From Shared Accountability to Culture Change Success by Daniel Forrester and James Williams

Studies suggest two out of five new CEOs fail to meet their objectives in their first 18 months. Even CEOs who thrive in their first 18 months face an average tenure of 7.6 years, down from the global 9.5-year average in 1995. The outlook is grimmer for outside CEO hires, who take twice as long to ramp up as those promoted from within. C-suite executives report that only one in five CEOs hired from outside are considered high performers at the end of their first year, while nearly half leave within the first 18 months. Such systemic failure has nothing to do with competence, knowledge, or experience, but instead ties to how the CEO transition was orchestrated and whether major steps were missed.

High Potential…to Do What?

Most high potentials are selected on the basis of their technical talent and the extent to which their behaviors exemplify and promote their organizations’ operating cultures—the norms and expectations that represent how things are actually done—which often are quite different than their organizations’ highly touted visions and values. As a result, organizations have become very good at promoting a high potential for more of the same. This article highlights what talent managers need to look for and develop in their high potentials (and the commonly made mistakes that they should avoid) to move their organizations toward realizing their visions and goals.
