157: The Aspiring Leader — Successfully Step into a New Leadership Role | with John Lawler



Is your sight set on a new leadership role?

Perhaps you’re the Director of Finance, and you’ve just been tapped to become the new CFO. What do you need to change now that your former peers will be reporting to you?

Or maybe you’re not yet in a position with formal authority, but you know the leadership spot will be open in the near future, and you want to position yourself now. How do you get on the radar screen for internal promotion? How do you become the winning candidate? And most importantly — since 40% of new leaders fail in the first 18 months — how do you ensure your success and longevity if you get the job?

This episode focuses on how an aspiring leader can be successful. Jesse’s guest is John Lawler, who is co-author of The New Leader’s 100-Day Action Plan: How to Take Charge, Build or Merge Your Team, and Get Immediate Results.

As Managing Partner of the executive onboarding group PrimeGenesis, John and his team help leaders create and implement 100-day action plans to deliver better results faster. In fact, they have reduced the rate of failure for new leaders from 40% to below 5%. John works with leaders and teams during points of transition — such as executive onboardings, reorganizations, and M&A integrations.
