Recent studies have shown that upwards of 40% of new leadership appointments struggle to make an impact in the early period. The consequence of this is that many leaders end up leaving, getting fired or not meeting expectations within the first 12 months. The 100th day of your appointment has become the first judgment point of leadership effectiveness within organizations and its importance cannot be overstated. Whether you’re becoming a manager for the first time, or moving into a new managerial role, it’s important to start out on the right foot. Planning, doing value-added work, setting context and boundaries, delegating, and establishing feedback loops are all crucial to success in any new managerial position. During your first 100 days you need to do four things: Observe, think, plan and “do”. On paper it looks pretty simple, but in practice it’s anything but easy.
Who should attend:
- Non finance executives at various functional divisions responsible for developing and presenting budgets
- Finance executives responsible for collating divisional budget information and consolidating them into a budget
- Internal compliance executives responsible for ensuring observance to budgets
