Sparring Partners

For HR, we are sparring partners in every aspect of leadership development – from strategic and conceptual help to more hands-on assistance. This ranges from aligning leadership development approaches with business strategies, trends and top management agendas, to co-designing programs and searching for the right speakers, partners, or interim job candidates.

Some recent examples of topics:

  • Translating new transformation ambitions to leadership development
  • Searching for the right speakers and partners for (top) leadership programs
  • Engaging the top management in the leadership development agenda
  • Engaging top management for their own leadership development
  • Assisting in composing a new leadership profile
  • Building an eco-system of best-in-class partners for executive development
  • Refreshing the overall leadership development vision and approach
  • Finding an interim or new candidate for a HRD role
  • Assisting in succession planning and talent development strategy
