CUSTOMIZATION AND QUALITY ARE CORNERSTONES

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
Individual Executive Coaching
Our coaching process was designed to help companies and their leaders maximize business performance by developing leadership skills that are matched to the changing needs of the organization, role and situation. As a result, our focus is on developing leadership skills required to improve business results. In addition, coaching can be focused on high potential development, focused areas of opportunity, on-boarding, performance turn-around and conflict resolution.
Matrixed teams, functional teams and project teams will make quicker and more effective decisions and produce higher quality results by understanding a powerful team model. Especially relevant, our process guides them through the team model and assesses areas of attention required for the team to optimally operate together.
As experts in assessment, we can assess key talent and examine succession readiness and developmental gaps. Our process helps leadership teams to objectively review, share and agree on the talent identified as successors in critical roles. Most often our work leads to specific development needs to ensure leaders are ready when needed.
CEO Succession, Assessment and Transition
Our experience includes working with Board of Directors to examine the experience and capabilities of internal and external candidates in order to facilitate an objective CEO selection decision. We specialize in more complex situations such as the retirement or transition of a company founder, investor or owner. In addition to helping with all related communications, our CEO onboarding process can increase the probability of success of the selected candidate.
Leadership Development Curriculum
Customized curriculum in core leadership education areas can stand alone but is also embedded into our executive coaching and leadership development processes. These programs introduce concepts that are immediately actionable and link to specific goals and objectives in identified development areas.
