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 needing to drive down their executive fail rate. In our 2.5 year pilot program with a leading corporation in the financial services industry, we earned a promotor score of 9.7/10 and a dropped their failure rate to zero. (Yeah, they love us.)

Getting constructive, truthful feedback in real-time is one of the most difficult challenges for those who have reached the executive level.

Often, direct managers aren’t skilled at having the hard conversations needed and direct reports aren’t in a position to share their perspective without significant political risk. Yet blind spots are career killers and, as an executive, your skills must evolve as you rise through the organization in order to be successful long-term. What got you here, indeed, will not get you there. Leaders need to know where they stand today- and how well they are prepared to handle the next role or two. We’ve been assessing leaders for nearly twenty years and have a deep and wide-ranging database of tools to draw from. In-depth, interview-based 360’s, psychometric profiling, and career history assessments are among the tools we use to help executives fully understand their impact, limits, and better yet, how to move beyond them. Painful? Sometimes. Helpful? Absolutely.

/ Team Optimization /

When a better or different business result is top priority, the way teams operate needs to change. Teamwork isn’t easy—we know that.

Personality clashes, competing agendas, weak leadership and lack of alignment can all stall the collective efforts of even the smartest groups of people. Team effectiveness assessments always start our journey to strengthen any team. Teams must acknowledge where they are, what’s working, and what’s not in order to move the needle on their effectiveness. From there, our experts design the right learning content for a facilitated session to fix what’s broken and build on what’s possible. Our team optimization work is intense, effective and fully customized... every single time.
