Leading at Scale

Because succession decisions rely heavily on past observations, they tend to reinforce the traits that made early-career leaders successful – deep content knowledge, reliable delivery of short-term goals, and fitting into the existing culture.

As leaders ascend into roles of greater scope and complexity the expectations shift. Quality, perfection, and work ethic are replaced with complex trade-offs, thoughtful risk-taking, and inspiring performance in others. The result? An insufficient pipeline of leaders prepared to lead at scale.

The foundation of Executive Bench is a leadership model grounded in Scalability – the readiness of leaders to scale successfully into large, complex, enterprise roles.

Our Readiness for ScaleSM Model is the foundation
of our approach to assessment.
