Step beyond the individual
Our name embodies the philosophy that senior leadership transitions are enterprise events, requiring coordination and alignment across the board (where it is a board-facing role; the “boss” in other transitions), organization (represented by HR, Communications, IT, and other functions), leaders (incoming and outgoing), and teams. This is the BOLT Framework.
Services exist to assist individual leaders prepare for and enter senior leadership roles. On the whole, these are one to one coaching-based approaches. We believe successful transitions extend far beyond an individual, no matter how experienced or talented the individual. Instead, BOLT works seamlessly with individual leaders as well as your organization and your teams during the intensity of the transition period. Maximize the available time and efforts of your people by combining what you’re great at with our expertise.
Few organizations execute a meaningful, strategic transfer of the knowledge and relationships central to performance in a senior leadership role. Even fewer deliver results appropriate to the level of performance expected in these roles. We work with you to ensure comprehensive knowledge transfer across BOLT’s ten fundamentals of transition, from people and networks to the technical portfolio, and many important stops and nuances in between.
