Alejandra Lozada is a senior member of CEB’s product management team in charge of CEB’s Leadership Transition Support initiatives.
Alejandra advises C-suite leaders on how to manage their transitions. Her research helps new-to-role leaders identify the key actions they can take to dramatically boost the likelihood of transition success and to decrease potential productivity losses associates to their transitions.
Alejandra helps leaders address the key challenges associated to transitioning to a new role: improving organizational intelligence, setting a vision for the new team, driving change, measuring progress and building and maintaining relationships with key stakeholders. Given that more than 25% of executives turn every year, effectively addressing these challenges can improve the business results not only of the new leaders but also of their organizations.
