Research has proven time and again that the quality of the senior leadership team has a dramatic impact on company performance. The stakes for leadership decisions continue to rise as companies transform themselves through new strategies, different product mixes, and expansion into new markets and geographies in response to changing competitive and marketplace dynamics. We help companies with a broad range of leadership and talent issues, including:

Aligning culture and talent strategy with business strategy

We provide insight about how the culture, organizational structure and leadership capabilities and styles support the business strategy and recommend ways to improve the alignment of culture, talent and strategy.

Merger integration support

We partner with clients to define the capabilities required for critical roles in the merged company and provide accurate and objective information about individual strengths, weaknesses and styles in order to select, retain and integrate the right people for the business.

Maximizing team effectiveness

We identify and measure the factors that have the greatest impact on the health of leadership teams, including relevant cultural and team dynamics, and provide advice for improving team performance and alignment with the future direction of the business.

Customized needs

We provide the insight into executive experience, leadership capabilities, style and aptitudes, as well as culture and team dynamics, that enable better leadership decisions at important junctures for the business, including the arrival of a new senior leader, a change in business strategy, and succession planning for the CEO and other top team positions.

Few leaders today question the importance of having the right individuals in key executive positions or underestimate the value that a healthy culture and high-performing teams provides to the business. Yet, diagnosing a misaligned culture, impediments to team effectiveness and the specific developmental needs of individuals can be challenging without the right tools and methodologies. We work with organizations to help them make better leadership decisions whatever the situation.
