About the book
Transitioning to a new C-suite role is exhilarating, challenging, and demanding all at the same time—a unique combination of intense experiences that can be tough to manage, to say the least. The skills and actions you need to succeed during your first year are different from those required after you settle in. If you don’t do it right at the start, you’ll find it much more difficult to effectively lead your organization for the long term.
Ajit Kambil is the creator and a leader of Deloitte’s program for helping executives like you transition into the very highest levels of your organization. In The Leadership Accelerator, he details the four critical competencies you should master in order to succeed, and he walks you through the process of building your expertise in these key areas:
- Prioritize and manage time, the only irrecoverable asset for yourself and your organization
- Develop talent into the right places to deliver measurable results
- Manage relationships to build social capital and influence other C-suite members to get key agendas executed with the least resistance
- Drive transformational change in your organization through effective strategies and catalyzing actions
Kambil’s model is based on his extensive research and insights from Deloitte’s Transition Labs, personalized one-day workshops delivered to over 4,000 executives. The Leadership Accelerator reveals the research and practices Kambil has undertaken for more than a decade to learn exactly how real-world leaders have successfully transitioned into high-level roles. Quick, action-oriented chapters conclude with clear takeaways and exercises that can help you transition and define your leadership strategies and work plans.
Start your new position out strategically and lead your organization to the top of its industry—and build a lasting legacy for yourself.
