Watkins gives you the keys to successfully negotiating your next move-whether you're onboarding into a new company, being promoted internally, or embarking on an international assignment. In The First 90 Days, Watkins outlines proven strategies that will dramatically shorten the time it takes to reach what he calls the "breakeven point"--When your organization needs you as much as you need the job. This new edition includes a substantial new preface by the author on the new definition of a career as a series of transitions; and notes the growing need for effective and repeatable skills for moving through these changes. As well, updated statistics and new tools make this book more reader-friendly and useful than ever. As hundreds of thousands of readers already know, The First 90 Days is a road map for taking charge quickly and effectively during critical career transition periods-whether you are a first-time manager, a mid-career professional on your way up, or a newly minted CEO"-- Provided by publisher.

This book has long been seen as a standard in business writing for guiding new leaders through their first 90 days. While overall the book would be better as a long article, there is much of interest. The chapter on "Negotiating Success" is probably the most useful, in my opinion, as it offers significant guidance on how to shape your initial discussions with your boss, and how to have those discussions ensure success.
