More than 150 IMD alumni and executives recently gathered at Deloitte in Copenhagen to discuss leadership transitions. In any new role, the first 100 days aren’t easy to manage. Yet, how a leader operates in the beginning sets the stage for achieving long-term goals.
IMD Professor Martha Maznevski and Polaris Managing Partner Jan Johan Kühl addressed the challenges that business leaders face in varying scenarios. From turnaroundsituations and re-alignment to ownership and investment, the style a leadertakes must be appropriately selected. Some situations require bold action and enforcement, while others need an understanding and open leader who will listen and delegate.
