Executive Education

Identifying and Developing Leaders for the Future

International Food Products Company

Situation

Senior leaders at the firm expressed the need to identify and develop future leaders, including general managers, function heads and company officers. They sought to enhance their executive bench strength in a more deliberate fashion.

Solution

We designed a custom program that included an intense assessment of each executive’s leadership and management capabilities, as well as important management development educational modules. Executives in the program received individualized coaching based on their assessment results, which increased performance. Corporate leadership received reliable data to determine those executives who had the most potential to lead the company in the future.

Results

The firm gained a clear picture of the leadership and succession pipeline. Future leaders gained a better understanding of the roles best suited for them. Senior leaders and program participants were able to build on individual strengths while addressing the firm’s weaknesses through education and hiring practices.
