Every day, people move into new roles but things don’t work quite right. In fact, 40% of them bomb.

That’s why George Bradt started PrimeGenesis in 2002.

Following successful careers at Unilever, Coca-Cola, and Procter & Gamble – and degrees from Harvard & Wharton – he knew there had to be a better way.

George wanted to help new leaders move successfully into their roles. And he’s led the revolution in how people start new jobs on the right foot.

Along the way, he’s learned how new leaders can ramp in 3 months instead of the typical 6-12 months. And reduce the 18-month failure rates from 40% to 5%.

He’s the author of 6 books on onboarding & leadership including “The New Leader’s 100-Day Action Plan”
