Managing the leadership transition from founder/owner to chief executive/general manager

We’ve worked with a number of companies who have created new senior leadership roles and welcomed a Chief Executive or General Manager into the business, and can confidently say that a carefully managed approach is absolutely fundamental to future business success.

“Preparing a business for a change in leadership and setting up the new person to succeed, if not done well, can be a hard lesson to learn. Challenges aside, don’t loose sight of this significant milestone that can propel your company’s future growth.” 
Sarcha Every – Decipher Group, Co-founder & Director
