Leadership Transitions: Step-by-step group process to reduce disruption when a new leader takes the helm.


Almost all workplaces are in transition. Employees leave for one reason or another and each departure has an impact. What many do not realize is that a simple, repeatable a step-by-step process exists to significantly reduce disruption when is a work group has new leader or many new employees.

A transition meeting is a best practice facilitated conversation between the subordinates and the new leader as soon as possible (or during high turnover between the leader and new employees).

The act of saying, “I am leaving my position” sends a wave of emotions throughout a work team. Research conducted by the US Navy documented a consistent decrease in effectiveness and productivity lasting approximately six months. However, downtime can be reduced through a structured transition. After applying this approach, research showed a reliable reduction of the disruption period from six months to around a month when applying an effective transition strategy.

Come join and learn this simple, yet powerful group process.

At the end of the training, participants will:

  • Learn a step-by-step process to transition new leaders.
  • Know how to accelerate new groups or new leaders to perform quickly.
  • Understand common group dynamics at the time of leadership transitions.

This training is limited to 20 participants. Sign up now to ensure your spot!
