Executive Team Building
Hiring the right person is just the first phase of a successful leadership transition. What then?
Over 40% of new CEOs fail or leave within 18 months. Aside from picking the wrong person, the major cause of failure in a leadership transition is an executive team that never jells.
New executives are expected to hone and share their vision of success, win the hearts and minds of employees, and demonstrate some quick wins-- all before initiating the long march to sustainable performance. We help new chiefs build effective operating norms with his or her senior team.
When should you use this service?
- A new CEO has just been selected
- Several C-levels have left or joined
- The Board has concerns about C-Suite alignment
Based on their understanding of organizational context and key stakeholder interests, our consultants provide options for new C-level leaders by building and completing a checklist of 30-60-90 day activities and desired outcomes. We facilitate key meetings and, as needed, help reconcile differences before they turn into a problem.
