Consultant, Head of Scaling for Growth
Michael Peterman is a partner at RHR and the head of development for Executive Bench. He builds next-generation leadership solutions, each of which is grounded in science and research. Michael’s vision is to empower leaders to make a greater impact on their organizations, improve their quality of life, and ultimately solve the world’s biggest problems.
With a particular focus on scalability, Michael helps leaders to adapt to ever-changing, complex, and challenging roles. His experience as an internal business leader, combined with his expertise in psychology, makes him uniquely qualified to build programs that focus on the capabilities most critical to success in executive roles.
Woven into Michael’s current work is the experience he gained prior to joining RHR, in which he developed executive coaching processes for industrial Fortune 500 company Novelis. Outside of work, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and dog. He also practices the skills that his programs teach in his own life, with a focus on mindfulness and performance optimization.CONTACT

As we evolve our leadership and succession practices to align with our growth agenda, RHR has been a trusted partner in bringing objective data and insights on our talent to better shape our future.
Tapaswee Chandele, Global Head of Talent and Development
Succession planning done right builds internal bench strength for smooth leadership transitions. RHR provides a second set of eyes on our top talent, and helps us focus their development to maximize their potential.
Working with the team from RHR was a pleasure. They were able to enhance and complement our programming and accelerate the growth and development of our employees.
Joe Hirt, Director, Leadership Development
I have worked with the RHR International team for over four years across two different companies, and I have seen the impact of our partnership manifested through improved leadership, heightened levels of candor and awareness, and more thoughtful and informed succession decisions. Since the early days of our partnership, they have consistently modeled an intent to help leaders be “the best versions of themselves” by leveraging rigorous assessment data which in turn has led to powerful conversations and more importantly…behavior change.
Stacey Panayiotou, EVP, Human Resources
The rigour with which our talent has been assessed by the RHR team offers us an objective foundation upon which we can support our leaders in strengthening and building their leadership competence. As a result of our partnership with RHR, our leaders will be better prepared, personally and professionally, to tackle the opportunities and challenges ahead.
