What are you going to do when your executive calls to say that she or he is leaving for another job or is planning to retire. Who will manage the organization when the executive leaves? Executive departures are seldom easy, and the resulting transitions are critical events in the lifecycles of organizations. It is important not to underestimate the challenge that this change is likely to create for stakeholders.
Replacing an executive is expensive and time consuming, and the downside risks of failure are significant. Too often, organizations are ill prepared for the process.
Engaging a professional interim executive gives the board of directors the time to conduct its search process in a reflective mode, and the peace of mind that the organization will be well managed during the transition period. Maple Tree Consultants can provide you the leadership during periods of high growth, integration and separation.
