Our firm conducts senior level search assignments for universities and companies that are focused on research and innovation. As the economy continues to accelerate we expect our phones to be ringing more frequently from clients who need us to help them attract the right leaders for their organization.
For boards of directors and university trustees this is an important inflection point relative to attracting the best leaders for key roles; the competition for talent will increase significantly as the year progresses.
Companies and universities with a desire to grow and develop have a unique opportunity right now to review the performance of their key leaders and decide whether or not to reward them or make a change.
Here are few actions that can be taken:
- Consider how effectively your organization is meeting its defined goals and objectives.
- Review your financial strength and leverage options.
- Identify current leaders driving growth and development, meeting their goals; and those who are not.
The “growth window” will not remain open indefinitely; complacency during improving times can lead to trouble in the future when the pendulum swings in the opposite direction.
If you think your university or company could benefit from a confidential discussion and review of the effectiveness of your current leadership team we will be happy to hear from you; please contact us.
