Transition Coaching

“After all the work is done securing or promoting the right candidate, organisations need to realise that to this point they have only invested in the process, they are yet to invest anything in the person”.


First Quarter is an executive transition coaching framework developed under Converge Consulting that works with new leaders during their transition into a new role. Working with both external hires and internal promotions we drive winning outcomes for each newly appointed leader, which has a flow on effect to their team, division and organisation. First Quarter’s unique methodology and systems optimises each new executive’s own abilities, enabling them to confidently tackle and overcome the distinctive challenges inherent in their transition to a new leadership role.

Early in the transition is the best time to invest in your new leaders with transition coaching. Failure to establish credibility and establish momentum early virtually guarantees an uphill battle for the remainder of an executive’s tenure.

“Half of newly hired executives quit or are fired within the first two years. Almost as many who change jobs or are promoted (40%) fail within the first 18 months”

The framework was developed after years of executive coaching and research best practice methods from around the globe specifically working to accelerate a new executive’s transition into a new organisation. The First Quarter transition coaching framework effectively balances between senior level frameworks that have been proven to work across different industries with the flexibility to adapt to the individual executive’s coaching requirements.
