New leaders will have a much greater likelihood for early and lasting success if they participate in effective onboarding. Activities that help the executive quickly understand his/her own tendencies, learn the organization and its culture, build a support network, and establish the right priorities early on will all pay significant dividends.
Witt/Kieffer offers a comprehensive, carefully crafted onboarding process that helps leaders acclimate in the first weeks and months on the job. Our consultants play an active, hands-on role in ensuring that leaders are getting the knowledge and support they need to do their jobs, while also identifying challenges and weaknesses that can be addressed before they become barriers to success.

A new executive hire is a major investment, and onboarding ensures that investment is nurtured from the start and that full productivity is achieved as soon as possible. Onboarding helps new hires get to better quicker.
