BOARD SEARCH PRACTICE
The Board of Directors can and should be a strategic asset.
The boardroom has never been under more scrutiny. At a time when expectations for board engagement, ethics, governance and overall performance have never been higher, many boards lack diversity, leadership and gravitas. Boards are under pressure from the capital markets, media, regulators, shareholders, the CEO and other constituencies to provide strategic value and to ensure the sustainability of the enterprise through executive transitions and complex market conditions. Whether it’s advising individual Board members,lead directors, key committee chairs, or working with the entire Board, N2Growth offers the following Board Advisory services:
- Director/Board Assessment and Evaluation
- Director Selection and Board Composition
- Director Succession and Assimilation
- Board Advisory, Consulting and Development
- CEO & CXO Succession and Assimilation
- Board & C-level Recruiting
- CEO and Board Coaching
- Governance, Risk Management & Compliance Consulting
- Compensation Committee Assistance
- Equity Strategy Management
- Crisis Management
Few things can influence executive leadership like an engaged, productive, and insightful Board of Directors. N2Growth has deep expertise in adding leverage to Boards by helping them identify their needs, align their resources, lead in the present, and plan for the future. If you’re ready to maximize the impact, effectiveness, and efficiency of your Board, then we should talk.
N2Growth offers both enterprise level and individual assistance to executives entering a career transition.
Our corporate programs are specifically designed to NOT resemble traditional outplacement services. We offer a highly engaged client experience that not only enhances and protects the employer brand, but offers a next generation, value added service for employees easing the burden of transition, while creating a strong corporate alumni population. Your ex-employees say as much about your brand as your current employees – we make sure those teammates being transitioned still feel like they’re a part of the team.
The individual program is tailored to senior executives contemplating the thought of career transition as well as those already in the midst of a transition. Think of it like this – few things are as important as making the right moves when it comes to career management. Our services are to executives like sports agents are to athletes. Our cadre of coaches and advisors are experienced in working with board and C-level executives in navigating the complexities of making the right moves, at the right times, for the right reasons.
Whether you are an employer looking to make intelligent investments into those leaving your organization, or an individual executive contemplating a transition we invite you to give us a call – you’ll be glad you did.
Manage Risk – Accelerate Success
The funny thing about timing is that sometimes it works to your advantage and sometimes it doesn’t. One thing we can promise you, is that at some point your organization will experience either a planned or an unplanned transition on your executive team. The harsh reality is that even with all the emphasis on succession planning and leadership development, nobody can offer a 100% guarantee that your company, team or culture will have the right option when needed.
When organizations find themselves in need of filling a key executive role on an interim basis, N2Growth offers interim executive placement for as few as 90 days and for up to 12 months. We have a deep bench of board and C-level leaders in our Executive In Residence (EIR) program. N2Growth EIRs are tried and trusted executives who have led before and who can minimize the risk of important transitions when a vacuum needs to be filled.
If your organization needs to make a short or mid-term transition and needs an experienced outside-in perspective, then we invite you to contact us.
