Because of their position, executives don’t often receive candid feedback. We provide in-depth executive assessments that offer honest and objective insights. Our higher-touch, higher-rigor approach includes:
- Qualitative 360-degree interviews
- An in-depth competency interview
- A battery of online personality assessments
- A debriefing session with a Vaya coach
Our executive development approach is tailored to each participant. Plans target leadership gaps, as well as the participant’s aspirations and goals. Our approach includes:
- Participant-manager HR goal-setting
- Six to 12 months of coaching
- Stakeholder check-ins
- A qualitative six-month checkpoint assessment of change and impact
Executive coaching is a contracted relationship between the executive and a Vaya certified coach that aims to develop new and sustainable leadership habits.
Using assessment data and stakeholder feedback, we set specific goals for the executive. During the six- to 12-month process, the coach and executive engage twice a month to discuss progress and next steps. The stakeholder-centered approach is designed to help the leader make sustainable behavioral changes that impact business success in a tangible way.
A Variety Of Executive Leadership Solutions
We provide executive assessment, development and coaching solutions
for a variety of organizational needs.
Meant to increase self-awareness and effectiveness, this rigorous assessment offers insight into how others experience the executive’s behaviors and how the executive’s personality is pre-wired. We use the results to identify leadership gaps and behavior to be targeted through development and coaching.
Using an executive role-based assessment, we determine which employees are best equipped for future leadership roles. Identifying gaps between the succession candidate and the executive position, we then create an accelerated development plan to increase the individual’s readiness.
We provide an in-depth assessment of the executive candidate, as well as insights on fit with culture and gap areas to probe. If hired, the candidate receives assessment feedback and the guidance of our proprietary 120-Day New Executive Start-Up Plan.
A two-step process, we first assess each executive, then facilitate team sessions aimed at understanding strengths and gaps. Participants work to identify similarities and differences in leadership styles, as well as actions to improve team dynamics and achieve business goals.
Serving as co-pilot, we provide support to first-time executives transitioning into their new roles. Our executive assessment provides specific behaviors to target, practice and perfect. Our 120-Day New Executive Start-Up Plan offers guidance toward a productive and engaging start.
We help develop a new framework that defines what great leadership looks like in your company. Following an in-depth executive assessment of each leader, we focus development against the new framework. We also identify the executives best-suited to the new framework, as well as those who may not fit the leadership style.
