Succession Planning

Succession Planning & Talent Calibration

  • Do you want to better understand the talent in your organization?
  • Could your talent review process be more efficient, standardized, and accurate?

  • Target your talent requirements for the future
  • Define the key characteristics most likely to predict future leaders
  • Measure potential deep into the organization
  • Assess readiness for critical positions
  • Implement a standardized and accurate process for conducting talent review calibration discussions.

CEO & C-Suite Succession

We have worked with several organizations to identify success criteria, select and prepare future CEOs and other C-Suite executives. 

We collaborate with you and your board to create CEO selection criteria, success standards and cultural fit indicators to maximize the likelihood of CEO success. We then conduct developmental assessments with any internal candidates well in advance (ideally years) before the position is vacated, allowing the greatest chance for your internal successor to be ready for the role. When the timing is right, we then conduct selection assessments on your final contenders and provide executive coaching to your new CEO, and team coaching to the senior leadership team. 

 Talent Calibration

Only about a quarter of organizations globally have succession planning efforts in place across multiple levels of leadership that go deeper than the senior leadership team. 

To set your organization apart, it is imperative that you are able to: 

    • Understand the characteristics and competencies that it takes to succeed given your culture and business strategy,
    • Have a well-defined, validated and standardized process to measure these characteristics and competencies,
    • Accurately identify your high potentials and retain, engage and accelerate their development for the future!

We will work with you to develop a succession planning and talent review process to ensure you are defining and measuring your current and future talent on what matters most!
