You Need Us When

  • People have been promoted for their individual accomplishments and technical skills, not their leadership abilities
  • Your best employees start looking and leaving, draining your talent pipeline
  • The cost of replacing failed managers has become untenable, beginning at 150% of salary for each failure
  • Morale and engagement has started to crater, and you face years of recovery time
  • Senior leaders spend valuable time on high-maintenance managers who cause more problems than they solve
  • Opportunity costs have started to pile up as legal, human resources and other departments are called in
  • It has taken months to discover the depth of the problem, more months to document the problem and even more months to do something about it
  • Productivity has fallen or flattened, and the problem has become hard to hide
  • Little or no preparation has been given to people moving into leadership roles
  • New managers have been thrown into important positions to sink or swim, without tools or support

You can't afford this and you don't have to.
