Typical Scenarios for our Career Strategy Advisors
Joining a New Business
It is frightening to see the number of executives who fail within their first 12 months when joining a new organisation. Knowing how to adapt to the new environment, act cautiously, but deliver quickly, is key to a new executive appointment, no matter if it is their first, or if they are an experienced hand. Our Career Strategy Advisors work with newly appointed executives to help them understand their new organisation, its culture, behaviour and strategy, and then develop a plan for their first weeks and months to ensure they gain rapid traction whilst building effective relationships amongst their peers and teams.
An executive’s first appointment to an Executive Committee role or to the Board for that matter can be a disconcerting and stressful experience with many unforeseen hurdles and simple miscalculations eroding colleagues respect and confidence in the appointment. Our Career Advisors have both executive and NED Board experience and work closely with your executives to ensure they rapidly navigate their way to success.
Leaving a Business
When you part company with an executive, protecting your reputation, your customers, and your existing colleagues is essential. We work closely with you to ensure that the process is completed with mutual respect, rational thinking, and a focus on the future rather than the past. This leaves the company to focus on today’s challenges, and the executive to focus on a future of new possibilities.
