second pair of eyes, second pair of hands
Sometimes a leadership or HR team just needs a second pair of eyes to be a sounding board, develop ideas, explore options and build a robust business case. Partners in leadership roles often need to see the research and detail that can be time consuming to produce.
I work behind the scenes with HR Directors to develop talent and succession plans, HR strategic plans, board papers and change management projects. Let me draft the report, pull together the research and outline the options. You can add the nice touches to a concise and logical report that draws on the available evidence.
CASE STUDY: research client Partner succession
The leadership team of an engineering firms was interested to know more about the ways to introduce client partner succession. Key questions included how to best select, appoint and rotate client relationship partners, the risks and benefits of long term relationships between individual partners and key clients, and finally the recognition and reward systems that could be useful options for this firm to consider. Using a combination of structured interviews and research, the final report described a number of options discussed at the partner conference. HR Board report
The HR Director of a mid-tier firm needed to quickly answer questions from the Board relating to lateral hiring of Partners. The report analysed the firm's current experience, summarised the available research about executive transitions and partner career paths to provide a clear set of recommendations for future hiring and on boarding activities.
