How can you prevent yourself from failing in your new position? The answer onboarding – a concept designed to accelerate the transition of executives into their new roles and to improve the foundation for their short, medium-, and long-term success.

The book “Executive Onboarding – The Key to Successfully Onboarding Your New Position” is written by Henrik Brabrand, CEO of Albright Life Sciences© and explains the importance of executive onboarding and provides concrete tools and cases from the life science industry designed to help newly appointed executives to navigate  areas most critical to their success. Onboarding is as much about transitioning newly hired external executives into an organization (External Onboarding), as it is about transitioning existing executives from one role and/or leadership level to the next (Internal Onboarding). Companies that employ structured Internal- and external onboarding, enjoy higher leadership transition success rates as they more frequently are able to pass their leaders successfully through to new roles and career steps. When entering a new leadership role, you will have limited time to understand and learn to navigate within the complex dimensions of the organization, stakeholder expectations, and culture. This book will give you concrete tools and perspectives on how to make this transition.
