Succession Planning & Executive Search

Grow your leadership pipeline.

Leadership transitions are pivotal moments.

Ensuring a diverse bench of future leaders is critical for organizations setting themselves up for future success. We’ve witnessed first-hand the consequences that occur when organizations are left in limbo by leadership turnover, and the challenges can arise from underdeveloped leadership pipelines. We have programs and services to help you SUCCEED in the three horizons of succession planning.

DEI Programs

Horizon 1: Build your bench

Our SUCCEED pipeline development programs are focused on growing your team and developing the high-potential leaders in your organization. We help these members of your team grow to possess the executive leadership capacity required to contribute at higher levels, and instill in them the foundations of inclusive leadership that allow organizations to grow and thrive.

DEI Programs

Horizon 2: Make a plan and identify candidates

We partner with your organization’s leadership and/or board to develop both long-term and emergency succession plans for CEOs and other mission-critical roles. We understand that one of the great challenges of evolving your leadership is in finding truly mission-aligned individuals with the experience and expertise to hit the ground running. That’s why we offer advising on non-traditional search strategies that tend to yield more diverse candidate pools, as well as support for your end-to-end candidate search.

Horizon 3: Transition well

Whether your new leader comes from within your organization or is identified through a search, their hire marks the beginning, not the end, of an important phase for your organization. We partner with the executive to set clear goals, build strong relationships with their executive teams and/or boards, and ensure they have the support in place to succeed.

Are you ready

The Gifts of Gratitude

The Gifts of Gratitude

The premise of this time of Thanksgiving is about celebrating the bounty in one’s life and giving gratitude for the things we have been blessed with. While the origins of the holiday itself and some of the ways it continues to be celebrated are fraught, there are also new traditions being imagined and other emphases for our gratitude. Seth Godin’s Thanksgiving Reader is one example and Oprah has compiled this list of 30 traditions to try with your family, while this article from Cultural Survival highlights strategies for decolonizing and honoring native peoples on Thanksgiving and throughout indigenous peoples’ month.

Beyond “Happy Holidays”: Religious Inclusivity in the Workplace

Beyond “Happy Holidays”: Religious Inclusivity in the Workplace

Religion can feel like a forbidden topic in the workplace, but it’s an important aspect of who we are and how we relate to each other. There are many ways that we can incorporate conversations about religion into our workplaces to help us connect more authentically, build belonging, and set a strong foundation for working together. As we get into the practice of expanding our awareness of religious and cultural practices, we can change our attitudes and take action to create workplaces that are inclusive of people of all religious backgrounds.
