Few events carry greater risk to value creation than changes of leadership. Most organizations have ineffective processes for finding and preparing the next generation of leaders. We understand that mapping out generations of future leaders is almost impossible to do alone. Our Enterprise GPS and LeaderShift Architect succession consultants help organizations clarify, enhance, design, and implement more effective succession strategies and planning processes.

Executive Succession

Our Enterprise GPS and LeaderShift Architect draws on our vast knowledgebase of executive assessments to create a whole person success profile aligned to the organization's strategy. We then assess internal and external candidates against it using multiple assessors and assessment techniques, including a unique simulation exercise that places candidates in realistic situations faced by an executive in a given role and environment. Our Enterprise GPS and LeaderShift Architect assessment process produces powerful insights for the Board, enabling them to make confident decisions about their next CEO, but also for the candidate themselves. This means the positive impact is far-reaching, advancing the capabilities of individual executives, top teams, and entire organizations.

Talent Review

Our powerful and proven Enterprise GPS and LeaderShift Architect talent review process gives an organization a clearer understanding of its talent at every level and reveals if its succession planning is—or is not—producing the leaders it needs. This research-based, validated, and repeatable process pinpoints development needs enabling organizations to develop their talent in a differentiated way to maximize individual and organizational impact.

Executive Development

We offer executive development against role gaps and group development against organizational gaps, as well as role-specific or strategic build/buy strategies.
