Senior business leaders who leave your organization with dignity and who receive the resources and support to advance their careers are much more likely to serve as valuable brand ambassadors, transfer critical knowledge to remaining leaders, and help successors maintain client relationships.
We partner with executives to identify and secure roles or activities that are deeply satisfying. For executives nearing or considering retirement, we help explore options such as serving on boards or in other industry positions where they could be potential brand advocates. We help ensure a positive experience that enables organizations to execute succession plans and retain upcoming leaders.
