To capture how leaders are feeling about transitions, we asked participants to share their biggest challenges, evaluate their preparedness, and examine what they wished they’d known before leaving the familiar for the foreign. We gained insights from 618 respondents on who helped them the most (and the least), what skills they needed and when, and what they’d do differently given a second opportunity.
