Mastering Executive Transitions | Speaking with Vodafone’s Navid Nazemian


In his bestselling book, Mastering Executive Transitions, Navid explains how pre-covid research proves that executive transitions are risky with 40% failing during the first 18 months. As well as this he discusses how new executives often require six+ months to break even productivity levels and that the global pandemic coupled with #TheGreatResignation has further intensified the risk of a rocky start, ultimately meaning that executive transitions are even more challenging now than ever before.

Throughout this interview Navid talks us through the numerous ways executive transitions can fail and ways in which these can be rectified, this includes investing in employees once they’ve been hired and providing equal support for both males and females in these positions.

We are also delighted to have Navid join our speaking line-up at the Workplace X Summit on May 5th 2022 at Twickenham Stadium, London. Learn more about the event here.
