We worked with the Board of Directors and three top leaders of the worldwide organization to assure leadership succession process would occur in most effective manner with best leadership possible emerging from the election process.
We worked with the Canadian Firm of Deloitte/Touche, assisting them with three top leader successions over a twenty one year period of time.
We supported this accounting and auditing firm to move from number seven in their industry to number one in their country. We designed a merger integration process for them that supported successful completion of 35 of 36 mergers. Every one of the successful mergers, acquisitions and takeovers made their business case. They implemented the change without slashing and burning human resources. We designed an innovative and creative use of “Appreciative Inquiry” that changed the way the creator of AI used the theory, concept and method. The income of half the partners in a national merger doubled and this success was credited largely to our tailored AI intervention. The unit of work was leadership succession.
Working with an individual in the organization, our ability to act as a objective third party and support a senior executive make a decision about whether to leave or stay with his organization was credited with saving the organization more than a one and one half million dollars, the cost of replacing the executive had he left the organization.
We designed and conducted a workshop for 19 years credited by the organizational leader as being the best risk management intervention in their organization. Savings were significant and impossible to fully measure. The estimated savings, millions of dollars. The peace of mind, priceless.
