For an effective succession of the CEO, it is crucial to specify its role rigorously and precisely. In helping you to specify the role of the CEO and the selection criteria, we base a rigorous method with a high touch approach. Our consultants conduct structured interviews with each member of the Board and with the other main stakeholders to arrive at a clear and shared picture of the challenges that the next CEO will have to face. We work alongside you to carry out a weighted quantification of the necessary leadership characteristics.
We help you carefully evaluate candidates for succession in relation to your specific needs. We explore the candidate's career, motivations, ambitions and results, and perform a comparative assessment to measure, methodically, the strengths and weaknesses of each candidate. We are also able to assess leadership potential using a unique methodology that allows us to simulate the behavior of potential leaders in new and more demanding management roles and identify potential related risks.
