Durango, CO (PRWEB) January 18, 2006
Lore International Institute, in partnership with the world’s leading authority on leadership transitions—Dr. Michael D. Watkins—announces a new coaching service based on Watkins’s international best-seller, "The First 90 Days: Critical Success Strategies for New Leaders at All Levels." This new coaching service will dramatically increase the success rate of newly placed or promoted executives by combining a proven transition management methodology with an elite group of coaches and world-class executive coaching techniques.
Lore and Dr. Watkins have created this new coaching service—First 90 Days Acceleration Coaching™— to give organizations a coaching tool that will eliminate unnecessary failures that result from newly appointed leaders being left to "sink or swim" through a critical transition period. The one-on-one coaching is based on Lore’s formal, sustainable four-step process which systematizes how coaches should adapt their style to the preference of their coachees. Leaders in transition will be matched with one of Lore’s 230 coaches certified in both Lore’s Adaptive Coaching methodology and Dr. Watkins’s First 90 Days transitions methodology.
"We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Watkins to develop his ideas into this new set of tools for executive coaching," said Dr. Terry Bacon, President and CEO of Lore. "Our seasoned coaches will help newly transitioned leaders avoid costly failures by guiding them through the first six months of their transition, including the creation of a personal business plan."
Research has shown that two out of every five new executives that join from outside a company fail within 18 months—at considerable cost to the companies that hired them. Executives at one Fortune 50 company reported that they performed 40 percent better during their transition as a direct result of transition coaching. "The decisions that a transitioning executive makes in the first few months on the job determine their success or failure," said Dr. Watkins. "However, few executives receive the support they need during this critical time."
"We are pleased that we will be able to offer this exclusive coaching service. Our clients, like most organizations today, are facing the retirement of the baby boomer generation, a significant number of whom comprise key executive leadership positions," said Dr. Nancy Atwood, Senior Vice President of Coaching, Consulting, and Assessment at Lore. "Acceleration Coaching will help our clients turn transitions into organizational strength, rather than a liability."
