As the number of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) continues to increase on a global basis, more leaders are called upon to develop their M&A transition skills. But what is the role of a leader when it has just been announced that their organization has been acquired or merged? How do leaders keep themselves and others motivated and focused on work goals, customer satisfaction, and revenue growth? This article introduces an M&A leadership model, describing six skill categories leaders should develop to support themselves, their employees, and their organizations through successful M&A transition.
