Your board chair is the key to building and maintaining an effective board, and a well-planned and managed chair succession process is key for sustaining a high-performing board. Discontinuity in board leadership can have a significant impact on operations and strategy, which is why we offer expert guidance and support throughout the entire succession process.
Our experienced consultants work closely with you to develop an agile and robust succession plan that takes into account various scenarios and potential challenges. We understand that a great board chair is not only an expert on people and relationships, but also has the ability to set the tone for the entire board and improve operations to maximize the value the board contributes to the company.
Our approach is grounded in data-driven insights and a thorough understanding of your board’s culture and strategic priorities. We work with you to develop a clear and agreed upon strategic context, and to determine the skills and capabilities required by the board to achieve its goals. We recognize that aligning the board's view on a clear role specification, mandate and appointment process can be challenging, which is why we provide objective recommendations and alternatives to ensure a smooth and effective succession process. Throughout the process, we provide constant support to you and the appointed candidate to ensure a successful transition of board leadership.
