Equity & Diversity Consulting
In recent years, there has been a growing recognition in our industry that internal leadership demographics have not kept pace with diversity in our broader communities. We work with firms to first conduct rigorous internal demographic research and then define and develop changes in both culture and policy to encourage inclusion.
To support long-term leadership development, we design individualized programs for executives that increase awareness and engage new ways of responding. Through coaching, leaders improve their collaboration and communication skills, are able to more effectively handle challenging situations or individuals, become better at inspiring clients and staff, and create workplaces with improved teamwork.
Few things are more critical to a firm’s long-term viability than the selection of future leaders. We evaluate candidates with proven assessment tools and recommend development steps to prepare them for successful leadership roles.
Leadership doesn’t always come naturally. Mentoring can help new leaders—and ones that have been leading for a while—confidently grow into their expanding roles. Our approach stems from our own long-term senior management roles in design and construction firms.
For a closely held design and construction firm to be successful over the long term, an orderly transition of leadership and ownership from generation to generation is essential. Transitions must occur at the right time and favor the best-qualified candidates in appropriate roles. We have first-hand experience in succession planning, and use that deep knowledge to guide clients to a successful outcome
