A personal view by a “new” managing director who describes his own experiences in taking on the challenge of a very different dual role in a new organization. He joined GHN, a specialist consultancy providing executive coaching and mentoring almost a year ago from a top position in the financial services industry, managing director of Prudential Life and Pensions. His changed role encompassed becoming a business coach and taking over the role of managing director from a charismatic co‐founder. Looks at the benefit he received from being coached prior to taking up the job and the steps he was taken through to help him plan an effective entry into a changed role and a new organization.
