Executive Coaching

Transition Coaching

A personalized coaching process that mitigates risk of failure during transition. Highly recommended for leaders and critical roles to ensure individuals successfully take on new positions or additional responsibilities.


Every time leaders change roles, there is a period of vulnerability. The risk of failure during transition is significant. When senior leaders or those working in critical roles are moved into new positions or take on additional responsibility, having a thoughtful transition plan with executive coaching sets up leaders for success, boosts confidence, credibility, productivity, and retention. A dedicated Human Edge transition coach:

  • Provides the individualized support leaders need to be successful
  • Supports the leader through the critical phases of integration
  • Identifies gaps and required learning to accelerate transition
  • Assesses vulnerabilities of the leader, building on their strengths and enabling the right mindset
  • Builds key relationships with stakeholders and maps network

Transition Coaching for Successful Integration

Spanning 4-6 months, a dedicated coach and leader develop a transition plan and roadmap to meet the specific needs of the leader and the strategic needs of the business. Together, they define critical actions for the first 100 days to establish credibility, secure quick wins and position the leader and their team for sustained success. Different from traditional one-off onboarding, this program is an ongoing process including regular meetings, essential feedback, and adjustments as needed.

General Transition Coaching
