Leadership

We improve client performance via assessing and developing leadership capabilities at large and medium-sized companies globally.
Leadership is about the clarity of a firm‘s long-term orientation, the anticipation and management of change, the development of talent and the achievement of above-average, sustainable results.

Improving supervisory board effectiveness in B2C

Limited added value by supervisory board: figurehead function with limited impact

Assessment of current effectiveness of each of these levers and capability development to improve performance of each lever; process and personal changes.

Highly active board; substantial impact of board on strategy, leadership, risk management, corporate governance, compensation policies and communication.
