Senior Management Team Assessments
In today’s fast paced work environment, many senior leadership teams find it difficult to set aside time for tackling the important or difficult issues that may limit the team’s overall effectiveness. Frequently, each leader is stretched, working to the best of his/her ability within their own individual area of influence, and may lack awareness of the organizational priorities of other senior leaders. In some cases, a lack of trust or competing goals may exist between some or all of the executive team members. Our executive team assessment provides an accurate assessment of both the strengths of your senior leadership team, and the opportunities that exist to improve.
A senior consultant from the Peter Barron Stark Companies will interview each member of the executive team, one-on-one. Each leader will be asked for his/her perceptions related to overall team effectiveness, communication, teamwork, trust, leadership, strategic direction, performance management, etc. After completing the interviews, the senior consultant will prepare a comprehensive, written leadership team assessment, summarizing strengths and opportunities for growth. Recommendations will be provided to address concerns raised in the lower rated areas of the assessment.
The consultant will then present findings to the senior leadership team and answer questions related to the findings. Next, the consultant will facilitate a discussion regarding actions that should be taken to address areas identified as being of concern. In some cases, the consultant serves as an executive coach to individual leaders. In other cases, the consultant facilitates team action planning meetings, and follow-up sessions to assess progress. In some cases, conflict resolution interventions may be recommended.
We have worked on hundreds of executive assessments. While each senior leadership team is unique, we are confident that we can help your team clarify their direction, improve professional relationships, and identify barriers that need to be overtaken in order for your team to reach its full potential.
In addition to the team assessment, access to our website, The Manager’s Toolkit, will also help each executive create a roadmap for success. On this site, executives can read through topics containing hundreds of recommendations, suggested actions, relevant blog entries, book sections, videos and audio. The Manager’s Toolkit will assist in the process by providing the executives with additional insight into becoming even stronger leaders.
