Executive Assimilation in Chicago
Ensuring the Success of an Officer-Level Appointment in Chicago
New executive assignments are exciting. And they can be intimidating. The stakes are high, the job is big, and the path toward success can seem as shifting as the winds in the Windy City. 50% of new executives fail within the first 18 months. Never do executives have more to lose or more to gain – the pressure is real.
We help new executives in Chicago assimilate successfully into new roles right out of the gate. To date, we’ve assimilated 30 executives in three years and each has been successful.
Are you considering executive assimilation in Chicago? Here’s the full picture.
- Failure Rate - Approximately 50% of new-to-role executives fail within their first 18 months
- Misaligned Culture & Expectations - Expectations and company culture are not clearly communicated or understood; early missteps are made that cannot be overcome
- Low Trust - The key stakeholders may be resistant or even skeptical and they need to be won over quickly
- Legacy Team - Leadership approach is often a mis-match for the state of the talent and morale of an inherited team
- Success Factor Profiling
- New Leader Assimilation Exercises
- Ongoing Executive Coaching
How It Works
Our unique approach to assimilating new-to-role executives is the most innovative of our services. Using a unique three-pronged approach, we blend Success Factor Profiling with New Leader Assimilation exercises and ongoing Executive Coaching to bombproof any officer-level appointment.
Through our work together, new or newly-promoted executives start in-role fully understanding stakeholder expectations, empowered to navigate the corporate culture, and armed with the context they need to quickly align their teams. This combination allows them to execute on expectations more quickly, with less hesitation and while making fewer costly mistakes.
Pressure-tested extensively in the Fortune 250 market, this approach is a game changer for organizations that need to drive down their executive fail rate.
In our 3-year pilot program with a leading corporation in the financial services industry, we earned a promotor score of 9.7/10 and dropped their executive failure rate to zero. (Yeah, they love us.)
