To reach peak performance every team requires strong leadership and the ability to collaborate toward a common goal. Boards and CEOs trust us to resolve their most critical leadership challenges. That entails understanding not only what is required for success as a current CEO, independent board leader, or director at a specific company, but also keen insight into how those requirements may change over time depending on a company’s strategy.
