CEO candidate preparation
We partner with executives aspiring to become CEO – ranging from those new to the C-suite to those actively in the running – by helping them develop their skills, leadership style, and personal operating model so that they are well prepared to prioritize their efforts and demonstrate proof points that they are ready for the next level. We also work with the CEO and the chairman, executive team, board and/or owners to establish a rigorous succession planning process.
CEO transition and onboarding
We support new CEO transition planning, from strategic aspiration-setting and developing the CEO’s transformation agenda, to the tactics of planning the first 150 days. Other areas of focus include building a high performing executive team, creating organizational alignment, fostering board and other stakeholder relationships.
CEO succession planning
We work with the owner(s), chairman board and incumbent CEO to establish a rigorous succession planning process; provide playbooks, tools, and insights to enable a successful transition planning and execution phase and prepare the incumbent CEO for their next ambition.
