The right people in the right place at the right time
Four factors drive the answer to how many direct reports a CEO should have:
- Tenure in the role
- The degree of cross-functional collaboration required for success
- Activities beyond the CEOs direct span
- Whether the CEO is playing a dual CEO/Chairman Role

Once talent has been identified, organizations can then implement a process to successfully develop these employees while identifying specific individuals for future key positions.

Identify talent development opportunities throughout the organization and match these opportunities with the right people.
Build the talent pool as well as identify successors for key positions.
Develop employees and managers – including individuals and teams – and ensure everyone is in alignment with stated outcomes.
Once the business needs have been identified, a plan is created that fits the culture.
Depending on your business and plan, we design and implement the appropriate tools to ensure you reach your business objectives.
Our comprehensive process includes HR training and workshop design and facilitation.
Whether through the talent review process or success planning, we help guide you through meetings and conversations between managers and employees.
