Executive Onboarding

For new executives joining the team, there is a high ROI for providing time for the leader to learn about the company and build relationships ahead of taking action.

Day 1-7 - Learning

  • Exec drafts plan and works with CEO to edit it in the first week
  • Joins leadership team meetings
  • Extra CEO 1-1 time (first 8 weeks)
    • 25m Monday and Friday meetings with CEO to mindmeld (cancel at exec's discretion)
    • Meetings cover company pitch, recruiting story, what's sacred and other topics
    • Gives opportunity for exec to dig in and find the "why" behind decisions
  • Exec may start with no directs and inherit them later after a plan is developed for each role

Day 1-30 - Planning

  • Understand the company and the team
  • Go through onboarding materials
  • Go deeper into the product
  • Build relationships and understanding with leadership team and broader team

Day 31-60 - Starting to execute

  • Develop concrete plans

Day 61-90

  • Start to see evidence of execution


  • Outside of a few exceptions, if onboarding has been done properly and an executive isn't working well with the rest of the team at 60 days, things are unlikely to significantly improve.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
