You know your business like the ‘back of your hand’ and you know what is needed to maintain revenue and growth in the face of rapid change; but can your people keep pace, or will they lag behind?
How do you know if your senior people can transform themselves to become the leaders you need to deliver on your future business strategy?
Do you have the right teams in the right markets?
Do they complement each other?
Can they up-skill for future opportunities?
The process of decoding a combination of personality, adaptability, corporate culture, business models and other variables is highly complex.
It requires keen discernment of both quantitative, ‘hard’ qualities, such as skills and experience; and less tangible ‘soft’ qualities, for example an entrepreneurial mind-set or ability to inspire others.
Boards and the C-Suite typically avoid scrutiny and development, often to the detriment of the organisation and shareholders. Ensuring good Board performance, composition, compliance and governance is key. An independent Board or C-Suite audit/report is invaluable in highlighting potential red flags and then presenting solutions for these.
