Preparation for leadership transition – especially for long-tenured or founding executives – paves the way for new leadership to succeed and helps the organization realize its full potential. In both planned and emergency leadership transitions, Raven Group helps:
- Conduct an organization assessment to identify and leverage strengths and address particular vulnerabilities to help prepare the organization for leadership transition.
- Craft a succession policy to ensure organization readiness for a leadership transition, whenever that occurs.
- Work with the executive to design his/her departure path.
- Partner with the organization’s transition and search committee to facilitate the executive search from start to finish: develop the position profile, establish a highly focused and targeted search plan, conduct candidate outreach and recruitment, and ensure a thorough on-boarding process.
- Help an organization ensure a good ending with the outgoing executive and a good beginning with the new leader.
