San Francisco, CA, October 03, 2015 --( Mariposa Leadership, Inc. is pleased to announce that George Bradt, an executive talent onboarding expert and co-author of the the book The New Leader’s 100-Day Action Plan, will be a guest on Wise Talk, a popular monthly leadership forum for technology executives, on Thursday, October 22 at 3pm PT/6pm ET. In an interview with Sue Bethanis, CEO/Founder of Mariposa Leadership, George will share insights on how successful executives plan for their first day on the job, the information they gather as early as in the interview process, and how they use that knowledge to craft a message, build a team, and deliver quick wins.

Companies spend top dollar to recruit and hire top executive talent, and yet, many lack a comprehensive executive onboarding plan. Executives have very little time to deliver results and the odds are stacked against those who start their job without an onboarding plan. The result is costly leadership turnover that is detrimental to the organization, employees and the executive. Studies have shown 40% of new leaders fail within their first 18 months on the job. But with the onboarding tools George and his team at PrimeGenensis, an executive onboarding and transition acceleration firm, developed and use with their clients, the turnover rate can be reduced to as little as 5%.

George Bradt, Managing Director, PrimeGenesis, has a unique perspective on helping executives accelerate transitions based on his combined senior line management and consulting experience. Prior to founding PrimeGenesis, George served as chief executive of J.D. Power's Power Information Network spin off and in general management, marketing and sales at Coca-Cola in Europe and Asia, Procter & Gamble and Unilever and is a principal of CEO Connection. George contributes a weekly column to, The New Leader's Playbook. AB Harvard; MBA Wharton. Follow him on Twitter: @georgebradt
