I have been waiting for this book my whole life! Having lived in eleven countries, moving frequently and being in leadership positions abroad for over thirty years, I would have loved to have had this book to offer the support I so often lacked. The title drew me in, because the first 100 days are what often mark us, and lay the ground for the next months or years, allowing us to succeed or fail, in particular when it comes to buy-in by those you are sent to lead. Liesbeth's world-class skills have been honed with her boots on the ground. Having studied and practiced what she teaches, she is an extraordinary coach, able to uncover the real issues and provide you with practical tools to address them like few others. You have in your hands the number one leadership tool for success in your new position: the power and method of building connections and trust. As a leader in any kind of organisation, this book is a requirement toward building your own skills and tremendous outcomes!
