Securing New Opportunities
A CEO of a $800M company wanted to secure a leadership role in a new industry. She had a formidable reputation among her industry peers and in her region of the country. She had spoken to recruiters at the large firms but wanted further advice and assistance.
We elevated her brand and expanded her profile nationally. She secured an exciting opportunity in a city much closer to where her children were attending university. She successfully negotiated a role with a lucrative compensation package in a new industry that held considerable interest for her. In addition, we established a plan for her to land a director role on a board in her new community.
Accelerating Leadership Talent
A C-suite executive of a Fortune 100 company sought my expertise to accelerate the development 2 of his high potential leaders.
“Don” was an intelligent and highly motivated leader with vast industry knowledge. He did not recognize that his often accurate but scathing criticism of large capital projects was alienating him from others. In addition, his well-founded recommendations were falling on deaf ears, generating an opportunity cost of $100,000s annually.
“Teresa” was a talented and highly respected leader. She lacked confidence in her own abilities, in part causing her to micromanage her team. She was most comfortable remaining in the office rather than presenting to market analysts or at industry conferences. She was a flight risk and the cost of her exit and replacing her would be over $500,000.
Don now engages with colleagues and his team in a more collaborative manner. He initiated a set of recommendations that resulted in 5% revenue growth—repeatedly.
Teresa is now a confident and reputable industry speaker contributing to increased shareholder confidence and rising stock price. With her improved leadership, her team increased productivity by 14 percent and she now has 2 identified successors for her highly specialized division.
“Lorraine challenges her team to perform at a higher level and has a leadership style that encourages finding ways to continuously improve while tracking tangible measures of success.”
