Discover the best way to define and utilize a Chief of Staff within your organization.
A Chief of Staff must work to meet the challenges and priorities of your specific organization. That's why we partner with you to understand the nuances of your leadership and organization through a needs assessment. This consultative approach helps us determine the right profile for a productive and successful Chief of Staff. This is a critical first step for all organizations considering a Chief of Staff.
Find a high performer who can build a close partnership with your executive.
Identifying the right person to fill your organization's Chief of Staff position(s) is essential. You want to get this hire right the first time. There are several key skills required to perform the role’s various responsibilities as well as a number of behavioral traits that make a Chief of Staff a true partner for your leadership. Our placement services focus on identifying candidates who match both the technical and behavioral skills required. Through a proprietary approach, we also find ways for the leader and Chief of Staff candidates to build chemistry, even during the selection process, for better results.
Integrate a Chief of Staff for better productivity and performance.
We believe onboarding is vital for every incoming Chief of Staff. Due to the demands of the position as well as its many facets, it is important for leaders and organizations to take a thoughtful and dedicated approach to integrating a Chief of Staff appropriately. While the learning curve can be steep, onboarding programs are proven to reduce time to productivity and get your Chief of Staff up to speed more quickly.
Create a development pathway for your Chief of Staff role.
We believe the Chief of Staff role is one of the best ways to create future leaders for your organization. Through development programs and succession planning, we help companies build a pipeline of Chief of Staff talent for seamless transitions. We also work with organizations to create pathways beyond the Chief of Staff role to ensure lasting retention of high-performing employees.
Commit to your Chief of Staff's growth and learning.
The nature of a Chief of Staff role is to focus on others (the “of Staff” part of the title). It is also a rigorous one in its efforts to optimally support a key executive and the organization. Nevertheless, an effective Chief of Staff must consider his or her own needs and development goals. We provide coaching for new and existing Chiefs of Staff to ensure full integration and productivity. Through a comprehensive action-oriented process, our certified professional coaches offer the opportunity for professional development and leadership effectiveness.
