First 100 Days CEO (Executive) Acceleration Coaching
Robert Hargrove coaches new CEOs to accurately analyzing their business situation and creating a transition strategy to match. CEOs are coached balancing “outside leadership” with the board, Wall Street, customers and “inside leadership” with the executive team, far-flung business units, and culture.*

First 100 Days Leadership Acceleration Workshop
This workshop is designed for executives, VPs and Directors in transition. It provides Leadership Transition Awareness appropriate to the person’s level, as well as ten critical success strategies. Participants learn to analyze their biggest leadership and business challenges, and come up with a 100 Day Action Plan.*

First 100 Day Middle Line Manager Workshop
This workshop is designed to give middle managers help in transition, whether they are hired from the outside, promoted from within, or facing a lateral move or a foreign assignment. The program helps managers get to the break-even point faster, where they are adding value in a new role versus consuming the organization’s financial resources. *


Accelerating Strategic Change Workshop for Executives
Strategic change can be accelerated by creating a dual management structure. One is a small strategic acceleration team tasked every 100 days with assessing the business, industry, and environment, and responding with more creativity, agility, and speed than a normal hierarchy. The second is to makes sure the strategic acceleration team works in a complementary way to the normal management structure. (See strategic alignment and execution model).*

Strategic Planning in Action Workshop
This program is designed for leaders and their teams in their first 100 days, or next 100 days. It’s based on the premise that realizing a vision and attacking ‘A’ level priorities starts with an honest assessment of where you are at as an organization. The program accelerates strategic alignment and execution.*

Emerging Leaders Acceleration Workshop
This workshop is designed for emerging leaders who have the potential to make a quantum leap in their careers in the next few years. It’s based on Robert Hargrove’s Seven Levels of Leadership, and the skills and capabilities that need to be developed for each level. People receive 360 feedback on where they are now on the continuum, and what’s needed to take the next step.*

Initiative Acceleration Workshop
This workshop is for (new) leaders and cohort teams tasked with adding power and velocity to an important organizational initiative. Typical examples include: merger integration, supply chain improvement, partnering for innovation, and better customer experience. Participants identify the initiative’s biggest “sticking points” and spearhead a breakthrough through a 100 day project.*
