Executive Chief of Staff (eCos)
Our chief of staff expertise help a busy owner of a smaller organization or an executive of a larger company stay focus on the most pertinent business issues - by taking the monkey off his/her back.
Our eCoSs do not replace the function of an executive or administrative assistant. On the contrary they collaborate with the leader's assistant, direct reports and teams to perform a wide range of strategic and tactical activities - geared towards enabling the leader to maximize his/her time and productivity.
Our eCoSs are highly trained, qualified and possess leadership experience. They have built their own organizations, directed departments and managed divisions.
They offer the busy owner and executive a unique value proposition - the ability to lead and complete high-level tasks with discretion, strong judgment and business acumen. They wear many hats; functioning as advisor, counsel, consigliere, project manager, facilitator and strategic coordinator. Their responsibility vary with the needs of the individual leader. Here are some ways in which we have helped other busy senior leaders like yourself:
Manage strategic priorities
Handle special cross-functional projects
Manage departmental/business unit/executive communications (townhalls, content for external/internal presentations, messaging, etc.)
We understand that sometimes the strategy has been set, and plans have been developed but companies run into execution or operational issues caused by capacity constraints, market changes or other factors. Learn more about how we helped your peers in these areas:
Business /Data Analytics
Organization Change Management
Dynamic business and market changes sometimes leave owners of small businesses and executives of larger companies with a critical void on the leadership team. We can not only help you fill this key void quickly but also give you access to valuable experience, fresh ideas and strengthen your bench strength to accomplish immediate goals.
With a "been there, done that" experience, our seasoned executives will help you keep the momentum going, turn challenging situations around, build up a new function, accelerate a start-up, achieve a short-term goal or address some immediate challenge.
Further, by deploying interim help, it will buy you time to verify your exact leadership talent needs, as well as help you contain or defer additional fixed overhead cost.
