Leader Transitions Program
The Leader Transitions Program is designed to assist firms with both onboarding and succession planning and implementation. Our program is designed to assist the firm leadership with approaching and repositioning senior talent and to provide clarity in targeting mutually agreed upon objectives. The customized, firm-specific program engages senior executives to ensure adequate addressing and planning for continued productivity, knowledge transfer, client transition and planned exit.
The Transitions program is geared to serve the firm, partner and clients. As such, it addresses client transition and retention, while also looking at opportunities for continued involvement in adjusted capacities. In the longer view, it also serves younger partners as they advance to augment and fill the vacuum created by the ever-growing numbers of senior workers.
Some obstacles to successful transition are psychological in nature and call for navigational support. This can include resistance to confronting issues of aging, talking with peers about these subjects and not wanting to project an image of “being too old” to contribute. To that end, it is importance to normalize such conversations within companies and within the lifecycle of one’s career.
