In it for you

We start from where you are – with your culture, your resources, and your people. Then we work together with you to integrate our expertise. Transition success needs to sound and feel like your organization.

FIVE REASONS TRANSITIONS FAIL

1

Who’s on it?

Responsibility for transition success is dispersed across many people or not assigned.

2

Too little, too late.

The transition approach is superficial and lacks coordination for all aspects of a complex, sophisticated role.

3

What are people really seeing and thinking?

Stakeholders are not appropriately engaged at critical moments of the transition.

4

One size does not fit all.

Internal programs are not tailored to senior leaders’ needs.

5

Superhero syndrome.

Focus is limited to the individual leader’s fit and not approached strategically from an enterprise view.

AGENTS OF CHANGE

We believe there are solutions to complex organizational challenges. There’s no reason why great people and great organizations should slow down or struggle with leadership transition.
