NOVATO, CA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Demonstrating leadership in a new management role isn't easy, which is why almost 50 percent of new executive hires fail in the first 18 months. In the next Experts Connection™ ( teleseminar, "On-Boarding: Successful Leadership Transitions," George Bradt, author of "The New Leader's 100 Day Action Plan," will explain how executives can successfully establish themselves in a new job. The Experts Connection session is scheduled for Wednesday, July 23, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. ET, (1:00 - 2:00 p.m. PT).

Bradt has been working with executives on successful transition strategies for a number of years. During his presentation, he will explain how new leaders can quickly take charge, build their teams, and get great results. He also will review the discrete steps required for success, including "pre-boarding" preparation before starting a new job, and how to focus on accelerating team performance from day one on the job.

Drawing from his expertise in working with Fortune 500 companies, Bradt will explain:

  --  How to leverage the "fuzzy" front end between job acceptance to the
      day you start to get a head start;
  --  How to manage first impressions from Day One; and
  --  How to implement a 100-day plan using building blocks of Tactical
      Capacity, including:
      --  Acceptance of a burning imperative;
      --  Using key milestones to drive performance;
