Accelerating the Development of 'Ready Now' Leaders
We understand that your company is looking for development that can be offered to leaders identified as ‘ready now’ after the succession planning process is complete. The most common approach is to send them to a leadership program that has the same agenda for all participants. As these leadership development programs have a great number of attendees, they are not sufficient to prepare executives for an effective transition at any time.
Allow us to introduce you to our creative and integrated development approach specifically designed for ‘ready now’ executives.
With EXEC360 you no longer have to wait until a position becomes available to ask: Are your executives ready and how can you verify that?
This program puts the finishing touches on your executives so that you can tap them on the shoulder and move them to their next position with confidence.
What Your Executives Can Expect
This highly customized program is tailored to match your executive’s personal skills and development needs as a leader and uses a proven personalized approach to guarantee optimal results. Better yet, each cohort only consists of 4 to 6 executives which means we’re able to provide each participant with the attention and support they require to excel in this program.
They can expect:
Customized development experience specifically tailored to improve his or her leadership ability and capability so that they are ready for that next position.
A safe space to ask questions and obtain answers on how to remove hindrances and roadblocks to achieve their full potential.
To discover derailers that might jeopardize their next opportunity.
Practical takeaways that can be applied instantly when returning to the office.
To learn from the facilitators as well as the other members of the cohort.
86% of business and HR leaders believe they do not have an adequate leadership pipeline (38% see it as an urgent problem).
We’re aware that varying companies use slightly different titles for their executives. To help identify candidates within your organization, consider those in current positions who hold titles with any variation of Director or Vice President.

Development Program Overview
Our 20+ years of experience in leadership coupled with having facilitated workshops for thousands of executives across four continents, allows us to create this uniquely effective design. There are three phases of the program.
Discuss program, identify individual goals & complete pre-work such as assessments
3 Day residency program that consists of:
Individual and small group coaching sessions to help your executives put what they’ve learned into action
Entire Program Duration is Approximately 5 Months
We use your succession planning process and combine that information with the development opportunities identified by your organization during the orientation and assessment phase to identify the types of positions they are being considered for and the skills expected for that role. Our signature mini-qualitative 360 and appropriate inventories/assessments will be used to ensure we have an EXEC360 view of the leader’s abilities today as well as their development opportunities. If your organization does not have a robust succession planning process with competency models, we are able to develop one for you.
This three-phase program amplifies the learning experience and accelerates the development process while maximizing your ROI.
Location of the Program
The Chauncey Hotel & Conference Center in Princeton, NJ sits on 320 wooded acres of land. These modern conference rooms are equipped to facilitate learning during the day and retreat ready rooms are available to executives for the evening.
