Getting Ready

Program Kickoff

With a confirmed engagement, the “Getting Ready” portion of your process leads off with extensive executive assessment, a half day of feedback with an organizational psychologist and your advisor. Follow that meeting, you will have a half day Strategy & Marketing Plan meeting, which will serve as your transition roadmap.

We know that high level executives rarely receive honest feedback from their CEO or their Board. That’s unfortunate. We all need to learn more about ourselves to grow, and confidential, empathetic, candid feedback from advisors who care can be life-changing.

The assessments provide the kind of insight that brings you face-to-face with your greatest strengths and abilities – and some blind spots that may need to be developed in our work together.

It’s here where we begin to think about your life from a fresh perspective.
