    100-day Fast Track for Executives

    First impressions and first actions of any new employee are critical, and even more so when the individual is an executive or senior leader in a key business area.

    This program is designed to enable the newly placed executive or other leader in transition to rapidly become effective and successful in the new environment.

    All too often top executives leave after a short while, due to lack of fit or disillusionment. Some estimate this cost at €250’000 and more when an executive leaves within six months. Can your organization afford this loss of time and money?

    We have a viable alternative.
