Feb 24, 2015, 8am-10am | Burlington Golf and Country Club | Partner Workshop

Join SB Partners for their next Next Gen CEO roundtable, The First 90 Days with Partner Joseph Schlett.

There is a right way and wrong way to transistion into a leadership role. It is easy to take on too much in a new leader's eagermess to prove themselves and end up  with dismal results. Dont' get derailed before you get started!

The most important decisions you make in your first 90 days (of your new job and/or role) will probably be about the people on your team. If you succeed in creating a high-performance team, you can exert tremendous leverage in value creation. If not, you will face severe difficulties, for no leader can hope to achieve much alone. - Michael Watkins, Author, The First 90 Days.
