Organizations today are looking for better, more objective ways to select, develop, grow and engage their people. Metro & Wythe offers clients a variety of assessment and development offerings designed to address these challenges in a way that reduces bias, increases effectiveness and fosters a culture of trusted decision making. Metro & Wythe's readiness experiences are designed to increase the likelihood our clients see a return on their talent investment and increase the new leader's chances of success. Our readiness examples are listed below.
We provide clients offerings around one of the most critical junctures executives and their organizations experience: when the leader is new. Research has consistently shown the extraordinarily high organizational cost incurred when a new leader fails. This combined with a relative shortage of talent and a shift to nontraditional/virtual work have created a greater need to mitigate the risks associated with a new leader's entry and require a more thoughtful and deliberate approach to their early tenure in role. We offer:
Custom, robust onboarding plans
New Leader and Team Integration programs
New leader strategy and goal development
As the external environment continues to change, the skills, behaviors and competencies of required for leaders to be successful continue to shift. More than ever, organizations must be able to accurately and fairly assess the current state effectiveness of their people. Additionally, research continues to show that data-driven feedback can both provide personal insight and serve as the basis for development planning initiatives. We offering the following services to clients in this area:
360 degree assessment (custom and external vendor designed)
Executive Development and Succession Planning
Many organizations are finding that the skills, behaviors and competencies required to lead are different than they were in the past. Additionally, their organizational structure and/or design may be changing in response to market change, business growth, or strategy execution. To support our clients, we offer the following offerings:
Data-driven, organizationally aligned development plans
Critical role identification and succession planning
