This book explores the intersection between executive leaders and their career transitions and how they can avoid the biggest mistakes and transition successfully

I decided to write this book because way too many executives fail during their transition. The failure rate is about 40% during the first 18 months.

It includes stories and insights from thought leaders as well as C-suite executives and my own experience as an executive transition coach.

Navid Nazemian, PCC Executive Transition Coach

Navid helps executives and their leadership teams accelerate and successfully transition into new roles.

He brings to the table an eclectic background that spans over two decades of human resources experience in some of the world’s most admired organisations at country, regional and global leadership level, in both emerging and developed markets.
