George Bradt has a unique perspective on transformational leadership based on his combined senior line management and consulting experience. After his education at Harvard and Wharton, George progressed through sales, marketing and general management roles around the world at Fortune 500 companies including Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, and then J.D. Power and Associates as chief executive of its Power Information Network spin off. Now he is Managing Director of PrimeGenesis, the executive onboarding and transition acceleration group he founded in 2002. Since then, PrimeGenesis has been able to reduce the risk of failure fourfold for executives they have worked with - from 40% to 10% through a single-minded focus on driving them and their teams to deliver better results faster over their first 100-days and beyond. George is the author of:

The New Leader’s 100-Day Action Plan (Wiley, 2006, 2009, 2011),

Onboarding: How To Get Your New Employees Up To Speed In Half The Time (Wiley, 2009),

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
